  • 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 Writer/s: HOAGY CARMICHAEL, JOHNNY MERCER
