And The Angels Sing
Album: Sentimental Journey (Concord, 2001)
Original Web Site: Todd’s Irving Berlin Page
Words by (Lyricist): Johnny Mercer
Music by (Composer): Ziggy Elman
We meet, and the angels sing.
The angels sing the sweetest song I ever heard.
You speak, and the angels sing.
Or am I breathing music into every word?
Suddenly, the setting is strange.
I can see water and Moonlight beaming.
Silver waves that break on some undiscovered shore.
Suddenly, I see it all change.
Long winter nights with the candles gleaming.
Through it all your face that I adore.
You smile, and the angels sing.
And though it's just a gentle murmur at the start.
We kiss, and the angels sing.
And leave their music ringing in my heart!
