Perry Como Sings Just For You - 1958
 
Long Ago ( And Far Away )
 
Long ago and far away,
I dreamed a dream one-day,
And now that dream is here beside me!
 
Long the skies were overcast,
But now the clouds have past,
You’re here at last!
 
Chills run up and down my spine,
Aladdin’s lamp is mine,
The dream I dreamed was not denied me!
 
Just one look and then I knew,
That all I longed for long ago,
Was you!
 
Long ago, so long ago and far away!
So long ago!
So long ago and far away,
I dreamed a dream one-day,
And now that dream is here beside me!
Long the skies were overcast,
But now the clouds have past,
You’re here at last!
 
Chills run up and down my spine,
Aladdin’s lamp is mine,
The dream I dreamed was not denied me!
 
Just one look and then I knew,
That all I longed for long ago,
So long ago, was you!
 
Just you!
