IT'S A NEW WORLD
from 1954 film "A Star Is Born)
(Harold Arlen (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1954)
with orchestra conducted by Ray Heindorf
How wonderful that I'm beholding
A never-never land unfolding,
Where we polish up the stars and mountains we move,
In a life where all the pleasures we will prove.
It's a new world I see,
A new world for me!
The tears have rolled off my cheek
And fears fade away ev'rytime you speak.
A new world, though we're in a tiny room,
What a vision of joy and blossom and gloom!
A new found promise, one that will last,
So I'm holding on and I'm holding fast!
You've brought a new world to me,
And that it'll always, always be!
