Posted by Azumi on   0 comments

Skylark

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Hoagy Carmichael

The song was publishe 1941.

Mercer said that he struggled for a year after he got the music
from Carmichael before he could get the lyrics right.
The yearning expressed in the lyrics is Mercer's longing for Judy Garland,
with whom Mercer had an affair.
This song is considered a jazz standard.
Additionally, the song is believed to have inspired a long-running Buick
car of the same name that was produced from 1953 to 1998.



Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
Won't you tell me where my love can be?
Is there a meadow in the mist
Where someone's waiting to be kissed?

Oh skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring?
Where my heart can go a journeying
Over the shadows and the rain
To a blossom covered lane

And in your lonely flight
Haven't you heard the music in the night?
Wonderful music
Faint as a will-o'-the-wisp
Crazy as a loon
Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon

Oh skylark, I don't know if you can find these things
But my heart is riding on your wings
So if you see them anywhere
Won't you lead me there
Oh skylark
Won't you lead me there?
