A VERY PRECIOUS LOVE Theme song from the film "Marjorie Morningstar" (1958) (Music: Sammy Fain / Lyrics: Paul Francis Webster) Gene Kelly (Film Soundtrack) - 1958 The Ames Brothers - 1958 Doris Day - 1958 Also recorded by: Jimmy Young; Slim Whitman; Dick Haymes; Jack Jones; Bonnie Guitar; Billy Vaughn: .... and others. Ev'ry show must have a song Most ev'ryone agrees For what else could the ingenue And the juvenile reprise And so I wrote a random note A harmony or two And when it came to add the words I tried describing you A very precious love Is what you are to me A stairway to a star A night in Shangri-La of ecstasy Lanterns of gold Lanterns of blue Twinkle in the shadows While I dance with you An echo in the wind Across the summer lake Is saying you should know That lanterns lose their glow And hearts can break So hold me close my darling Then kiss me tenderly And give your precious love Your very precious love to me
