Sherwin, E. Mashuritz)

[Recorded June 13, 1962, Los Angeles]

That certain night, the night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkley Square
I may be right, I may be wrong
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkley Square
The moon that lingered over London town
Poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown
How could he know we two were so in love? The whole darn world seemed upside down
The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And, as we kissed and said goodnight, A nightingale sang in Berkley Square

[instrumental]

The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And, as we kissed and said goodnight, A nightingale sang in Berkley Square
I know 'cause I was there
That night in Berkley Square

E. MASCHWITZ, MANNING SHERWIN
