I’M ALL SMILES
(Michael Leonard (m) / Herbert Martin (l) )
Lyrics as released in Barbra Streisand’s
1964 fourth solo album ‘People’.
I'm all smiles, darlin’
You'd be too
If you knew, darlin’
All of my smiles were for you.
I'm all chills, darlin’
Through and through
But my cold hands, darlin’
Warm to the touch of you.
Rain hasn't fallen for days now
But rainbows are fillin’ the skies
My heart must have painted those rainbows
Shining before my eyes.
Can't you tell that I'm in love, darlin’
Deep and true, with guess who, darlin’
Someone I die for
Beg steal or lie for
Eat humble pie for
Someone to fly
To the sun, moon and sky for
Someone to live for
To love with and cry for
And that someone is you.
These lyrics were sung (by Carmen Alvarez aka Twink) in the ill-fated 1965
Broadway musical ‘The Yearling’ which closed after 3 performances.
Director: Lloyd Richards
