I Only Have Eyes for You

Lyrics:Al Dubin
Music:Harry Warren

The song was publishe 1934.

Dick Powell introduced this song in the 1934 motion picture Dames,
scored by Oscar-winning songwriters,
composer Harry Warren and lyricist Al Dubin.
The song played throughout the soundtrack and was featured in two scenes.
Tenor Powell first sings it to Ruby Keeler on the Staten Island ferry.
He expresses his bedazzlement by saying that he doesn’t know
“if it’s cloudy or bright” or “if we’re in a garden or on a crowded avenue”
because “I only have eyes for you.”


My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you
And dear, I wonder if you find love
An optical illusion, too?

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
'Cause I only have eyes for you.

I don't know if we're in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here, so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you
