Lida Rose / Will I Ever Tell You? (1957)
(wm) Meredith Willson (I) Musical: The Music Man by Bill Spangenberg, Wayne Ward, Al Shea, Vern Reed, Barbara Cook
Quartet: Lida Rose, I’m home again Rose
To get the sun back in my sky
Lida Rose, I’m home again Rose
About a thousand kisses shy, ding, dong, ding
I can hear the chapel bell chime, ding, dong, ding
At the least suggestion, I’ll pop the question
Lida Rose, I’m home again Rose
Without a sweetheart to my name
Lida Rose, now ev’ry knows
That I am hoping you’re the same
So here’s my love song, Not fancy or fine
Lida Rose, oh won’t you be mine

Marian Paroo: Dream of now dream of then.
Dream of a love song that might have been.
Do I love you? Oh yes I love you.
And I’ll bravely tell you, but only when we dream again.
Sweet and low, sweet and low,
How sweet the mem’ries of long ago
Forever, oh yes forever will I ever tell you of love.
