– Isn't This a Lovely Day? –    

The weather is fright'ning
The thunder and lightning
Seem to be having their way
But as far as I'm concerned, it's a lovely day

The turn in the weather
Will keep us together
So I can honestly say
That as far as I'm concerned, it's a lovely day
And everything's O.K.

Isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain?
You were going on your way
Now you've got to remain

Just as you were going, leaving me all at sea
The clouds broke, they broke and oh!
What a break for me

– Somewhere –    Leonard Bernstein

There's a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us   Somewhere.

There's a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time to spare,
Time to learn, time to care,
Some day!  Somewhere.

Irving Berlin from the 1935 film Top Hat

I can see the sun up high
Tho' we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as I can be with you it's a lovely day

{...} It's so nice to be caught in the storm
{...} We're so cozy and warm

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as I can be with you
Long as I can be with you
Long as I can be with you it's a lovely day

& Stephen Sondheim,
 from West Side Story, 1957

We'll find a new way of living,
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .

There's a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we're halfway there.
Hold my hand and I'll take you there
Somehow,  Some day,  Somewhere!
Sentimental Journey –
music by Les Brown and Ben Homer
lyrics by Arthur Green
rec by Doris Day + Les Brown, 1945

Gonna take a Sentimental Journey,
Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey,
to renew old memories.

Got my bags, got my reservations,
Spent each dime I could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
Long to hear that, "All aboard!"

Seven...that's the time we leave, at seven.
I'll be waitin' up in heaven,
Countin' every mile of railroad
track, that takes me back.

Never thought my heart could be so yearny.
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take that Sentimental Journey,
Sentimental Journey home.
Sentimental Journey back home
