Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

 

A Portrait of My Love

There could never be a portrait of my love
for nobody could paint a dream!
You will never see a portrait of my love 
for miracles are never seen!
 
Anyone who sees her, 
soon forgets the Mona Lisa!
It would take I know, a Michael Angelo, 
and he would need the glow of dawn 
that paints the sky above 
to try an' paint a portrait of my love! 
 
< instrumental break >
 
. . . yes, he would need the glow of dawn 
that paints the sky above 
to try an' paint a portrait of my love!
