Sing to Me Mr. C. - 1961

All I Do Is Dream of You
Gigi
The Way You Look Tonight
Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

 
Sing to me, Mr. C., sing to me
the song that I've been waiting to hear,
just for me, Mr. C., just for me,
and everybody else will disappear . . .
 
All I do is dream of you the whole night through
with the dawn, I still go on, dreamin' of you!
 
You're every thought, you're every thing 
you're every song I ever sing 
summer, winter, autumn an' spring! 
 
And were there more than twenty-four hours a day 
they'd be spent in sweet content, dreamin' away! 
 
When skies are gray, skies are blue 
morning, noon an' night time too 
all I do the whole day through is dream of you!
 
When skies are gray, skies are blue 
morning, noon an' night time too 
all I do the whole day through is dream of you!
 
Gigi . . . am I a fool without a mind
or have I merely been to blind to realize?
Oh Gigi . . . why you've been growin' up 
before my very eyes! 
 
Gigi . . . you're not at all the funny 
awkward little girl I knew
Oh no, overnight there's been a breathless 
change in you!
 
Gigi . . . why you were tremblin' on the brink 
was I out yonder somewhere blinkin' at a star? 
Oh Gigi . . . have I been standin' up to close 
or back too far? 
 
When did your sparkle turn to fire 
and your warmth become desire? 
Oh, what miracle 
has made you the way you are? 
 
< instrumental break >
 
Oh Gigi . . . have I been standin' up to close 
or back too far? 
 
When did your sparkle turn to fire 
and your warmth become desire? 
Oh, what miracle 
has made you the way you are? 
 
Someday . . . when I'm awfully low
when the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you 
and the way you look tonight! 
 
Oh . . . but you're lovely 
with your smile so warm and your cheeks so soft
there is nothing for me but to love you 
just the way you look tonight! 
 
With each word your tenderness grows 
tearing my fear apart 
and that laugh that wrinkles your nose 
touches my foolish heart! 
 
Lovely . . . never, never change 
keep that breathless charm 
won't you please arrange it 
'cause I love you 
just the way you look tonight! 
 
. . . just the way you look 
tonight!
