A ROOM WITH A VIEW From the Broadway Revue "This Year Of Grace" (1928) (Noel Coward) Noel Coward (Broadway Production) - 1928 Ben Selvin & His Orch. - 1929 Roger Wolfe Kahn & His Orch. - 1929 Also recorded by: Jessie Matthews; Paul McCartney; Hildegarde; Irene Kral; Carmen McRae; Deco; Joe Loss & His Orch; Dominic Alldis; Cherie Lynn; Barbara Lea & Keith Ingham; Ian Bostridge; Herb & Lorraine Geller; Daryl Sherman; Peter Greenwell; Joyce Breach; Andrew Halliday: Jack Hylton & His Orch.; Bobby Short: ........... and others. I've been cherishing, Through the perishing winter nights and days, A funny little phrase That means so much to me, That you've got to be With me heart and soul, For on you the whole thing leans. Come with me and leave the noisy crowds, Sunlight shines for us above the clouds. Please don't turn away Or my dream will stay Hidden out of sight, Among a lot of "might have beens"! A room with a view, And you, And no-one to worry us, No one to hurry us through This dream we've found. We'll gaze at the sky, And try To guess what it's all about, Then we will figure out why The world is round! We'll be as happy and contented as birds upon a tree, High above the mountains and the sea. We'll bill and we'll coo-ooo-oo, And sorrow will never come, Oh, will it ever come true, Our room with a view? A room with a view, And you, And no-one to give advice, That sounds like a paradise few Could fail to choose. With fingers entwined, We'll find Relief from the preachers Who always beseech us to mind Our P's and Q's. We'll watch the whole world pass before us while we are sitting still, Leaning on our own window sill. We'll bill and we'll coo-ooo-oo, And maybe a stork will bring This, that and t'other thing to our room with a view. (Contributed by Peter Akers - August 2008)
