I’ve Heard That Song Before (1942)
(m) Jule Styne (w) Sammy Cahn (I) Film: Youth on Parade by Frank Sinatra. (P) Harry James Orchestra / Helen Forrest
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 “Forever more.” Forever more’s a memory.
Please have them play it again, And I’ll remember just when
I heard that lovely song before.
