WHEN LOVE BECKONED from "Dubarry Was A Lady" 1939 musical New York Cole Porter 1939 as recorded by Artie Shaw & his Orchestra (vocal - Helen Forrest) November 9th 1939 I used to dream Of a starlighted stream Where my man and I would first meet, So try to surmise My terrific surprise, When love beckoned in Fifty Second Street! Oh, I thought a breeze Would appear in the trees And sing something tender and sweet, But how could it sing With a band playing swing When love beckoned in Fifty Second Street? Now when we want to coo, Country lanes are taboo, And old West Fifty Two Is our favourite beach, When we're on our beach. So you can bet I shall never forget That mad second, When I first reckoned That love beckoned In Fifty Second Street! (Contributed by Peter Akers - February 2013)
