Songs to learn and sing (2)

Composta para o filme Swing Time, de 1936 e George Stevens, The way... ganhou o Óscar para a melhor canção. A versão de Astaire, primeira de centenas, permanece, salvo pior opinião, a mais perfeita. Como quase tudo o que Astaire gravou, aliás. Cole Porter não falava de cor.

The way you look tonight
(Jerome Kern, Dorothy Fields)

Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
And the way you look tonight

Oh but you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight

With each word your tenderness grow
Tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Lovely... Never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it ?
'Cause I love you... Just the way you look tonight
