WORLD IS IN MY ARMS, THE
(Burton Lane (m) E Y "Yip" Harburg (l) )
as recorded by
Tommy Dorsey & his Orchestra
(vocal - Frank Sinatra)
July 17th 1940 New York
Here was I, a gypsy,
Looking for a world to roam in,
Now the world is in my arms!
No more endless searching
For a place to feel at home in,
For the world is in my arms!
Mexican hills flower the sky,
Sappoco sees, here in your eye.
When I hold you I hold the world,
Right here in my arms!
