On a Clear Day
Music by Burton Lane
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
from the Broadway Musical “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever”
1965

Could any-one a-mong us / have an ink-ling or a clue /
What ma-gic feats of wi-zar-dry and voo-doo you can do /
And who would e-ver guess / what pow-ers you po-ssess /
And who would have the sense to change his views /
And stop to mind his E.S.P’s / and Q’s /

For who would e-ver dream of hear-ing phones be-fore they ring /
Or or-der-ing the earth to send you up a lit-tle spring /
Or fin-ding you’ve been crowned / The Queen of Lost and Found /
And who would not be stunned to see you prove /
There’s more to us than sur-geons / can re-move /

So much more than we e-ver knew /
So much more were we born to do /
Should you draw back the cur-tain /
This I am cer-tain /
You’ll be im-pressed / with you /

[ Instrumental: You’ll be im-pressed / with you / ]

On a clear day / Rise and look a-round you /
And you’ll see who / you are /
On a clear day / How it will a-stound you /
That the glow of your be-ing / out-shines e-v’ry star /

You’ll feel part of / e-v’ry moun-tain sea and shore /
You can hear / from far and near /
A world you’ve ne-ver heard be-fore /
And on a clear day / On that clear day /
You can see for-e-ver / and e-ver / more /

[Instrumental:
On a clear day / Rise and look a-round you /
And you’ll see who you are /
On a clear day / How it will a-stound you /
That the glow of your be-ing / out-shines e-v’ry star / ]

You’ll feel part of / e-v’ry moun-tain sea and shore /
You can hear / from far and near /
A world you’ve ne-ver heard be-fore /
And on a clear day / On that clear day /
You can see for-e-ver / and e-ver /
and e-ver / and e-ver / more!
