You're walking along the street or you're at a party,
Or else you're alone and then you suddenly dig;
You're lookin' in someone's eyes, you suddenly realize,
This could be the start of something big!
You're lunching at "Twenty One" and watching your diet,
Declining a Charlotte Rusee, accepting a fig,
When out of the clear blue sky it's suddenly gal and guy,
And this could be the start of something big!
There's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend,
Who know what's written in the magic book?
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend,
Invite her in without a second look!
You're u in an aeroplane, or dining at Sardi's
Or lying at Malibu, alone on the sand;
You suddenly hear a bell, and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand!
You're doin' your income tax, or buyin' a toothbrush,
Or hurryin' home because the hour is late;
Then suddenly there you go, the very next thing you know,
Is this could be the start of something great!
You're havin' a snowball fight, or pickin' up daisies,
You're singin' a happy tune, or knockin' on wood;
When all of the sudden you, look up and there's someone new,
Oh, this could be the start of something good!
Your destined lover you'll discover in a frightning flash,
So keep your heart awake both night and day.
Because the meeting may be fleeting as a lighting flash
And you don't want to let it slip away!
You're watching the sun come up, or counting your money,
Or else in a dim cafe you're ordering wine;
When suddenly there she is, you want to be where she is,
And this must be the start of something,
This could be the start of something
This could be the start of something fine!
