The world is lyrical Because a miracle Has brought my lover to me Though he's some other place, his face I see At night I creep in bed And never sleep in bed But look above in the air And to my greatest joy, my love is there He dances overhead On the ceiling near my bed In my sight Through the night I try to hide in vain Underneath my counterpane But there's my love Up above I whisper, "Go away, my lover It's not fair" But I'm so grateful to discover He's still there I love my ceiling more Since it is a dancing floor Just for my love TRIVIA: Originally written for the Broadway Show "Simple Simon" (1930), but not used.
