DEAR, DEAR >From the London Stage Musical "Ever Green" (1930) (Music: Richard Rodgers / Lyrics: Lorenz Hart) Jessie Matthews (Stage Production) - 1930 Jessie Matthews & Barry Mackay (Film Soundtrack) - 1934 JESSIE: As you draw me near you, I ought to fear you Rather thank think you grand BARRY: But I can't dissemble, it makes me tremble Merely to touch your hand JESSIE: Though we defy conventions, I'm so glad BARRY: No proper apprehensions have I had JESSIE: All of our transgressings seem such a blessing Am I bad? BOTH: Dear, Dear, this is much too nice It won't happen twice Dear, Dear, do you think we should Dear, Dear, this is all so quaint And I'm not a saint Dear, it's too good to be good BARRY: No love scenes on Movietone screens Compare with the one we stage now JESSIE: With the urge completely to merge You'd think we were both engaged now BARRY: Dear, Dear, one is made from two JESSIE: Which of us is you BOTH: Dear, it's too good to be true (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2015)
