LONDON BY NIGHT
Frank Sinatra w Billy May & his Orch rec Oct 3rd 1957 Hollywood
Frank Sinatra '50 '62
Julie London '58
London by night
Is a wonderful sight,
There is magic abroad in the air;
I'm often told
That the streets turn to gold
When the moon shines on circus and square.
Deep in the dark
That envelopes the park'
There's romance in each cigarette's glow.
Down by the Thames,
Lights that sparkle like gems
Seem to wink at each girl and her beau.
Up comes the moon when the city's asleep,
He's not alone, for it seems
Somewhere up there stands an angel to keep
Her watch while each Londoner dreams.
My love and I
Saw the sun leave the sky,
Then we kissed in the fast-fading light.
Most people say
They love London by day,
But lovers love London by night.
