I've Heard That Song Before

Lyrics:Sammy Cahn
Music:Jule Styne

The song was publishe 1942.

It was introduced by Martha O'Driscoll (dubbed by Margaret Whiting)
in the 1942 film Youth on Parade.

It was recorded by Harry James and his Orchestra with Helen Forrest
on vocal on July 31, 1942.
This was the last day of recording before the Musician Union's ban.
The recording was issued on Columbia 36668
and became a number one hit on both the pop
and the Harlem Hit Parade in the USA in early 1943.
This version of the song can be heard in Woody Allen's
movie Hannah and Her Sisters.

It seems to me I've heard that song before
It's from an old familiar score
I know it well that melody

It's funny how a theme
Recalls a favorite dream
A dream that brought you so close to me

I know each word,
Because I've heard that song before
The lyrics said "for evermore"
For evermore's a memory

Please have them play it again
And I'll remember just when
I heard that lovely song before
