I Could Write a Book (1941)
(w) Lorenz Hart (m) Richard Rodgers (I) Musical: Pal Joey by Gene Kelly and Leila Ernst (R) 1957 film version by Frank Sinatra; 1990 film When Harry Met Sally by Harry Connick, Jr.
Refrain: 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.
