Too Marvelous for Words

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Richard Whiting

The song was publishe 1937.

It was featured in the 1937 Warner Brothers film Ready, Willing and Able,
as well as a production number in a musical revue on Broadway.
It then became the love theme in the 1947 film noir Dark Passage directed
by Delmer Daves, first in a version sung by Jo Stafford,
then just instrumental as the love that finally reunites Lauren Bacall
and Humphrey Bogart is Too Marvelous for Words indeed.

Ready, Willing, and Able

Dark Passage

I search for phrases,
To sing your praises,
But there aren't any magic adjectives
To tell you all you are.

You're just too marvelous
Too marvelous for words
Like glorious, glamorous
And that old standby amorous

It's all too wonderful
I'll never find the words
That say enough, tell enough
I mean they just aren't swell enough

You're much too much, and just too very very
To ever be, in Webster's dictionary

And so, I'm borrowing a love song from the birds
To tell you that you're marvelous
Too marvelous for words

You're much - you're too much - and just too "very, very"
To ever be, to ever be in Webster's Dictionary.

And so I'm borrowing a love song from the birds
To tell you that you're marvelous;
Tell you that you're marvelous;
Tell you that you're marvelous -too marvelous for words
