ROYAL WEDDING (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "Royal Wedding" (1951) Starring Fred Astaire, Jane Powell, Peter Lawford, Sarah Churchill and Keenan Wynn All songs written by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner ********** EVERY NIGHT AT SEVEN Performed by Fred Astaire My royal day can be a royal bore It leaves me colder than a basement floor The only moment I keep waiting for Is when the day will be through I never know if it's dark or clear What people say to me I hardly hear The passing hours are an endless year Until at last I'm alone with you Ev'ry night at seven you walk in as fresh as clover And I begin to sigh all over again Ev'ry night at seven you come by like May returning And me-oh-my, I start in yearning again You seem to bring faraway Spring near me I'm always in full bloom when you're in the room For ev'ry night at seven, ev'ry time the same thing happens I fall once again in love, but only with you (Dance routine - Fred Astaire & Jane Powell) (Ev'ry night at seven, ev'ry time the same thing happens) I fall once again in love, but only with you ********** OPEN YOUR EYES Performed by Jane Powell Open your eyes There's a sapphire sky above us, high above us Made for you when you open your heart Open your eyes There's a carpet of jade around us, laid around us All for you when you open your heart Let me show you the sights, take you on a tour Of this great, new, fabulous world we own We alone So, open your eyes And you'll see how this momentary Ordinary night can seem more unreal than a dream ********** THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE Performed by Jane Powell I wake up with the sun each morning Happy the night's gone by I wake up and pray each morning Pray that the day will fly And then I sit back and smile And dream of that day when I'll be standing by your side, my love The happiest day of my life How my heart will swell with pride, my love The happiest day in a lifetime Then as the last words are spoken The bells in the steeple will chime And I will love you so and you will see It will be for a lifetime ********** HOW COULD YOU BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAID I LOVED YOU, WHEN YOU KNOW I'VE BEEN A LIAR ALL MY LIFE? Performed by Fred Astaire & Jane Powell FRED: Oh yeah, yeah! JANE: You listen to me just once FRED: Oh sure JANE: Yeah! FRED: Sure, yeah!

FRED: Will you put that in writin'? JANE: Well you're always makin' cracks, makin' cracks! FRED: Like what? JANE: You always humilate me, humilate me. Didn't your mother never teach ya no manners?

You're really naive to ever believe a full-of-baloney phony like me JANE: Why, I sure must've lost my head FRED: You ain't lost nothin' you never had JANE: What about the time you went to Indiana? FRED: I was lyin', I was down in Alabam JANE: You said you had some business you had to complete FRED: What I was doin', I would be a cad to repeat.
