The Song Is You

November 2023

The Song Is You

Music by Jerome Kern, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

I hear music

when I look at you

A beautiful theme of every dream

I ever knew


Down deep in my heart

I hear it play


I feel it start,

then melt away.


I hear music

when I touch your hand


A beautiful melody

from some enchanted land


Down deep in my heart, I hear it say

Is this the day?


I alone have heard

this lovely strain


I alone have heard

this glad refrain


Must it be forever

inside of me?


Why can’t I let it go?


Why can’t I let you know?


Why can’t I let you know

the song my heart

would sing?


That beautiful rhapsody of love

and youth

and spring


The music is sweet


The words are true


The song is you.
