Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

The Songs I Love - Perry Como

( The )  Days of Wine and Roses

The days of wine and roses,
Laugh and run away,
Like a child at play,
Through a meadowland,
Toward a closing door,
A door marked never more,
That wasn’t there before.
 
The lonely night discloses,
Just a passing breeze,
Filled with memories,
Of the golden smile,
That introduced me to,
The days of wine and roses,
And you!
 
The lonely night discloses,
Just a passing breeze,
Filled with memories,
Of the golden smile,
That introduced me to,
The days of wine and roses,
And you!
 
~ from the 1962 film "Days of Wine and Roses"
Music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Johnny Mercer, 1962
