Some Enchanted Evening – an old show tune




Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger,
you may see a stranger
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you'll see her
Again and again.

Some enchanted evening
Someone may be laughin',
You may hear her laughin'
Across a crowded room
And night after night,
As strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter
Will sing in your dreams.

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons,
Wise men never try.

Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love,
When you feel her call you
Across a crowded room,
Then run to her side,
And make her your own
Or all through your life you
May dream all alone.

Some Enchanted Evening is from the 1949 musical South Pacific.

I used to play it on the piano – one of the easier bits of music to play.
