a nightingale sang in berkley square lyrics – frank sinatra

(m.
sherwin, e. mashuritz)

[recorded june 13, 1962, los angeles]

that certain night, the night we met
there was magic abroad in the air
there were angels dining at the ritz
and a nightingale sang in berkley square
i may be right, i may be wrong
but i’m perfectly willing to swear
that when you turned and smiled at me
a nightingale sang in berkley square
the moon that lingered over london town
poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown
how could he know we two were so in love? the whole darn world seemed upside down
the streets of town were paved with stars
it was such a romantic affair
and, as we kissed and said goodnight, a nightingale sang in berkley square

[instrumental]

the streets of town were paved with stars
it was such a romantic affair
and, as we kissed and said goodnight, a nightingale sang in berkley square
i know ’cause i was there
that night in berkley square
