STRANGERS (Johnny Brandon / Peter Hart) Marie Benson & Johnny Brandon - 1955 BRANDON: It doesn't seem so very long ago When we were queueing for that bus that didn't come BENSON: And I gave you my only cigarette, my friend BRANDON: And I gave you my stick of chewing gum BENSON: We were strangers when we met A week or two ago BRANDON: Oh, we were strangers then and yet Somehow I seemed to know The question on your lips The starlight in your eyes The way you struck your smile Like a million summer skies BENSON: A date on Sunday evening And Monday night as well The gags, the fun, the dances The whole affair was swell (JB: It really was) BRANDON: A sail along the river BENSON: And a misty Moon above BOTH: Strange how strangers fall in love SPOKEN: BENSON: Johnny, remember the first dance we ever went to together? BRANDON: Oh, you bet I do. Remember I asked you to have a drink? BENSON: Yes, and we sat at that cosy little bar BRANDON: Uh-huh, and I ordered the biggest ice cream soda in the place BENSON: Yes, with two straws BRANDON: Well, I wasn't really thirsty at the time BENSON: Hey, Johnny, I've got a great idea BRANDON: Hmm-hmm, what's that? BENSON: Well, Ma and Pa have both gone to the pictures So, we can stay home if you like BRANDON: Yeah? BENSON: We can sit on the sofa BRANDON: On the sofa? BENSON: Turn out the lights BRANDON: Turn out the lights, yeah? BENSON: Turn on the radio BRANDON: Uh-huh BENSON: We can hold hands BRANDON: Oh, Marie, Marie, let's be daring BENSON: Yes BRANDON: Let's be really daring BENSON: Yes BRANDON: Let's take our shoes off and pull our toes BENSON Oh, no! BENSON: We were strangers when we met A week or two ago We were strangers then and yet Somehow I seemed to know The laughter in your voice Your step upon the stairs Your understanding way ?????????????? BRANDON: ?????????????? A stroll around the park Our evenings at the movies Our hands touched in the dark BENSON: ?????????????? ?????????????? BOTH: Strange how strangers fall in love Strange how strangers fall in love BENSON: Same time tomorrow? BRANDON: ????? BENSON: All right BRANDON: Goodnight (Sound of a kiss) BENSON: By the way, what is your name? **Unfortunately, the source material was so badly scratched that some parts of the last verse were impossible to transcribe.
