You’ll Never Know


Sung by Vera Lynn

You’ll Never Know
Music by Harry Warren
lyrics by Mack Gordon, based on a poem by Dorothy Fern Norris
1943

You’ll ne-ver know / just how much / I miss you /
You’ll ne-ver know / just how much / I care /
And if I tried / I still could-n’t hide / my love for you /
You ought to know / for have-n’t I told you so /
a mil-lion or more times /

You went a-way and my heart / went with you /
I speak your name / with my eve-ry pray-er /
If there is some o-ther way / to prove that I love you /
I swear I don’t know how /
You’ll ne-ver know if you don’t / know now

Heart and Soul


Sung by Bea Wain

Sung by Helen Ward

Twin piano scene from Superman Returns

Twin keyboard / piano rendition by Elijah York

Heart and Soul
Music by Hoagy Carmichael
Lyrics by Frank Loesser
1938

Heart and soul / I fell in love with you /
heart and soul / the way a fool would do /
mad-ly /

Be-cause you held me tight /
and stole a kiss in the night /

Heart and soul / I beg-ged to be a-dored /
Lost con-trol / and tum-bled ov-er-board /
glad-ly /

that ma-gic night we kiss-ed /
there in the moon mist /

Oh! but your lips were thril-ling / much too thril-ling /
Ne-ver be-fore were mine so strange-ly wil-ling /

But now I see / what one em-brace can do /
Look at me / it’s got me lov-ing you /
mad-ly /

That lit-tle kiss you stole /
held all my heart and soul!

Phrasing, as sung by Doris Day

By the light / of the sil-ve-ry moon /
I want to spoon /
To my hon-ey I’ll croon love’s tune /
Hon-ey moon / keep a-shin-in’ in June /
Your sil-v’ry beams / will bring love’s dreams /
We’ll be cud-dl-in’ soon /
By the sil-ve-ry moon /

Place / park / scene / dark /
Sil-v’ry moon is shi-ning through the trees /
Cast / two / me / you /
Sum-mer kis-ses floa-ting on the breeze /
Act / one / be / done /
Di-a-log / where would ya like to spoon? /
My / cue / with / you /
Un-der-neath the sil-v’ry moon /

By the light / of the sil-ve-ry moon /
I wan-na spoon /
To my hon-ey I’ll croon love’s tune /
Hon-ey moon / keep a-shin-in’ in June /
Your sil-v’ry beams / will bring love’s dreams /
We’ll be cud-dl-in’ soon / by the sil-ve-ry moon /

Act / two / Scene / new /
Ro-ses bloom-ing all a-round the place /
Cast / three / You / me /
Prea-cher with a so-lemn-look-ing face /
Choir / sings / bell / rings /
Prea-cher / You are wed for-ev-er more /
Act / two / all / though /
Eve-ry night the same en-core /

By the light / not the dark / but the light /
Of the sil-ve-ry moon / not the sun / but the moon /
I wan-na spoon / not croon / but spoon /
To my honey I’ll croon love’s tune /
Ho-ney-moon / ho-ney moon / ho-ney moon /
Keep a-shi-nin’ in June /
Your sil-v’ry beams / will bring love’s dreams /
We’ll be cud-dl-in’ soon /
By the sil-ve-ry / moon /
The sil-v’ry moon

We’ll Meet Again


Sung by Vera Lynn

We’ll Meet Again
Music and Lyrics by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles
1939

We’ll meet a-gain / don’t know where / don’t know when /
But I know we’ll meet a-gain / some sun-ny day /
Keep smi-ling through / just like you al-ways do /
Till the blue skies drive / the dark clouds / far away /

So will you please say Hello / to the folks that I know /
Tell them / I won’t be long /
They’ll be hap-py to know / that as you saw me go /
I was sing-ing this song /

We’ll meet a-gain / don’t know where / don’t know when /
But I know we’ll meet a-gain / some sun-ny day!

[Instrumental: ]

There’ll be blue-birds o-ver /
the white cliffs of Do-ver /
to-mor-row /
just you wait / and see /

There’ll be love and laugh-ter /
and peace / e-ver af-ter /
to-mor-row /
when the world / is free /

The shep-herd will tend his sheep /
the val-ley will bloom a-gain /
and Jim-my will go to sleep /
in his own lit-tle room a-gain /

There’ll be blue-birds o-ver /
the white cliffs of Do-ver /
to-mor-row /
just you wait / and see!

The shep-herd will tend his sheep /
the val-ley will bloom a-gain /
and Jim-my will go to sleep /
in his own lit-tle room a-gain /

There’ll be blue-birds o-ver /
the white cliffs of Do-ver /
to-mor-row /
just you wait / and / see!

April Showers


Sung by Al Jolson

April Showers
Music by Louis Silvers
Lyrics by B. G. De Sylva
1921

Life is not a high-way strewn with flow-ers /
Still it holds a good-ly share of bliss /
When the sun gives way to A-pril show-ers /
here’s the point you should ne-ver miss /

Though A-pril show-ers / may come your way /
they bring the flow-ers / that bloom in May /
So if it’s rain-ing / have no re-grets /
Be-cause it is-n’t rain-ing rain / you know / it’s rain-ing vi-o-lets /

And where you see clouds / u-pon the hills /
You soon will see crowds / of daf-fo-dils /
So keep on loo-king for a blue bird / and liste-ning for his song /
whe-ne-ver A-pril show-ers come a-long!
