Perry Como's Wednesday Night Music Hall - 1959
Keep It Gay
 
Keep it gay, keep it light, keep it fresh, keep it fair,
let it bloom every night, give it room, give it air
Keep your love a lovely dream an' never wake it
make it happy an' be happy as you make it!
 
Let it sing like a nightingale in May, keep it gay
keep it free or you'll frighten it away!
Take it easy and enjoy it, while you take it
Keep it gay, keep it gay, keep it gay!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
Keep it gay ( keep it gay! ) keep it light ( keep it light! )  
keep it fresh ( keep it fresh! )  keep it fair ( keep it fair! ) 
let it bloom ( let it bloom! )  every night ( every night! )  
give it room, give it air
Keep your love a lovely dream an' never wake it
make it happy an' be happy as you make it!
 
Let it sing like a nightingale in May, keep it gay
keep it free or you'll frighten it away!
Take it easy and enjoy it, while you take it
Keep it gay, keep it gay, keep it gay!
