Long Ago and Far Away (1944)
(m) Jerome Kern (w) Ira Gershwin (I) Film: Cover Girl by Gene Kelly
Long ago and far away, I dreamed a dream one day,
And now that dream is here beside me.
Long the skies were overcast.
But now the clouds have passed. You’re here at last!
Chills run up and down my spine. Aladdin’s lamp is mine.
The dream I dreamed was not denied me.
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for, long ago, was you.
