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 of the night? Wonderful music, faint as a 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

"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
