Goodbye for Now

A Nightingale Sang
In Berkeley Square

That certain night, the night we met, 
there was magic abroad in the air
there were angel's dining at the Ritz 
and a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!
Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
I may be right and I may be wrong, 
but I'm perfectly willing to swear 
that when you turned and smiled at me 
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!
 
The moon that lingered over London town 
or 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 when we kissed and said goodnight 
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
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 Berkeley Square!
 
I know 'cause I was there 
that night in  Berkeley Square!
