PLACE FOR LOVERS, A
Manuel de Sica (m) Norman Gimbel (l)
as rec by Ella Fitzgerald
Oct 21st 1967 Hollywood
Come and walk with me,
I know a place that your eyes must see;
A hidden hill in trees of lace
Where love is every place around.
There, where violets bloom,
We'll climb a stair to a quiet room;
No-one will see, no-one will know,
And there I'll love you so!
The sun will set,
And rise and set;
With you in this place for lovers,
What more would I ever need?
So come and take my hand,
I'll lead you there to this secret land!
Across the field, beyond the quay,
It's just one step away!
And there with you,
I'll share with you
