Night And Day

Album: Portrait Of Sinatra: Columbia Classics (1942)
  • Night and day
    You are the one
    Only you beneath the moon
    Or under the sun
    Whether near to me or far
    It's no matter, darling
    Where you are
    I think of you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Why is it so
    That this longing for you
    Follows wherever I go?
    In the roarin' traffic's boom
    In the silence of my lonely room
    I think of you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Under the hide of me
    There's an oh such a hungry
    Yearnin' burnin' inside of me
    And it's torment won't be through
    'Til you let me spend my life
    Making love to you
    Day and night
    Night and day

    Night and day
    Under the hide of me
    There's an oh such a hungry
    Yearnin' burnin' way down inside of me
    And it's torment won't ever be through
    'Til you let me spend my life
    Making love to you
    Day and night
    Night and dayWriter/s: Cole Porter
