Night and Day (1932)
(wm) Cole Porter (I) Musical: The Gay Divorcee by Fred Astaire and danced by Astaire and Claire Luce. (P) Leo Reisman Orchestra No. 1 chart record. (CR) Frank Sinatra (CR) Tony Bennett
Verse: Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom tom
When the jungle shadows fall.
Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall.
Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops
When the summer show’r is through,
So a voice within me keeps repeating, “You, you, you.”

Chorus: Night and day you are the one.
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun.
Whether near to me or far, it’s no matter darling where you are.
I think of you night and day. Day and night, why is it so?
That this longing for you follows wherever I go?
In the roaring traffic’s boom. In the silence of my lonely room,
I think of you Night and day. Night and day under the hide of me
There’s an oh, such a hungry yearning burning inside of me.
And its torment won’t be through
‘Til you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day.
