THE BOY NEXT DOOR
Hugh Martin & Ralph Blane
From the film "Meet Me in St Louis"...
The moment I saw him smile, I knew he was just my style,
My only regret is we've never met, for I dream of him all the while.
But he doesn't know I exist, no matter how I may persist,
So it's clear to see there's no hope for me,
Though I live at fifty one, thirty five Kensington Avenue,
And he lives at fifty one, thirty three.
How can I ignore the boy next door?
I love him more than I can say.
Doesn't try to please me, doesn't even tease me,
And he never sees me glance his way.
And though I'm heart-sore the boy next door
Affection for me won't display,
I just adore him, so I can't ignore him,
The boy next door.
