That certain night, the night we metThere was magic abroad in the airThere were angels dining at the RitzAnd a nightingale sang in Berkeley SquareI may be right, I may be wrongBut I'm perfectly willing to swearThat when you turned and smiled at meA nightingale sang in Berkeley SquareThe moon that lingered over London TownPoor puzzled moon, he wore a frownHow could he know, we two were so in love?The whole darn world seemed upside downThe streets of town were paved with starsIt was such a romantic affairAnd as we kissed and said goodnightA nightingale sang in Berkeley SquareWhen dawn came stealing up, all gold and blueTo interrupt our rendezvousI still remember how you smiled and said"Was that a dream? Or was it true?"Our homeward step was just as lightAs the dancing a feet of AstaireAnd like an echo far awayA nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
