Skylark (1941)
(m) Hoagy Carmichael (w) Johnny Mercer (I) Hoagy Carmichael (CR) Aretha Franklin
Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
Won’t you tell me where my love can be?
Is there a meadow in the mist
Where someone’s waiting to be kissed?
Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring
Where my heart can go a-journeying
Over the shadows and the rain to a blossom covered lane?

And in your lonely flight
Haven’t you heard the music in the night? Wonderful music.
Faint as will-o-the wisp, crazy as a loon.
Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon.
Oh, skylark, I don’t know if you can find these things,
But my heart is riding on your wings
So, if you see them anywhere, won’t you lead me there?
