ROOM FIVE HUNDRED AND FOUR George Posford (m) Eric Maschwitz (l) 1941 as rec by Vera Lynn also rec by- Dorothy Carless w Geraldo & his Orch '41 Binnie Hale '41 Judy Campbell '40's Frank Barber & his Orch Carroll Gibbons Such a big hotel, a very grand one, Right upon the avenue. We could not afford it, But sweet, I just adored it, My very first and only rendezvous. In room five hundred and four, So sweet a room, so strange and new, It was romance, a dream come true, That perfect honeymoon alone with you In room five hundred and four. We turned the key in the door; We hadn't dared to ask the price, That kind of thrill can't happen twice, And who would bargain over paradise In room five hundred and four? The lovely night, the starlight above, The sleeping town below, And in the dark you said, "My love!", The dearest things I know. We don't live there any more, But still in memory I adore The sweetest room I ever saw, The seventh heaven on the old fifth floor, Our room five hundred and four. We don't live there any more, But still in memory I adore The sweetest room I ever saw, The seventh heaven on the old fifth floor, Our room five hundred and four.
