I Could Write a Book Lyrics:Lorenz Hart Music:Richard Rodgers
The song was publishe 1940.
This song was also born in many years ago. It was written for a 1940's musical, "Pal Joey. " This musical has another tune that became a standard. It's "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered." On the stage of Broadway, the song was sung by Gene Kelly, but in the film (1957), Sinatra sang it. It was a very fine picture, of cause.
If they asked me, I could write a book About the way you walk and whisper and look I could write a preface on how we met So the world would never forget
And the simple secret of the plot Is just to tell them that I love you a lot Then the world discovers as my book ends How to make two lovers of friends
