YOU'RE ALL THE WORLD TO ME
from 1951 film "Royal Wedding"
("Wedding Bells" in UK)
sung by Fred Astaire
(Burton Lane (m) Alan Jay Lerner (l) 1951)
with The MGM Studio Orchestra
directed by Johnny Green
Everywhere an orchid grows, you are!
Everything that's young and gay,
Brighter than a holiday,
Everywhere the angels play, you are!
You're like Paris in April and May,
You're New York on a silvery day,
A Swiss Alp as the sun grows fainter,
You're Loch Lomond when Autumn is the painter!
You're moonlight on a night in Capri,
And Cape Cod, looking out at the sea.
You're all places that leave me breathless,
And no wonder you're all the world to me!
