I wander lonely streets Behind where the old Thames does flow And in every face I meet Oh reminds me of what I have run from
In every man, in every hand In every kiss, you understand That living is for other men I hope you two will understand
I've gotta tell you my tale Of how I loved and how I failed I hope you understand These feelings should not be in the man
In every child, in every eye In every sky, above my head I hope that I know So come with me to bed
Because it's you and me, we're history There ain't nothing left to say When I will get you alone
Maybe we could find a room Where we could see what we should do Maybe you know it's true Living with me's like keeping a fool
In every man, in every hand In every kiss, you understand That living is for other men I hope you know that I am me, so come on
I'm thinking about history And I'm living for history And I think you know about me 'Cause I am
And one and one is two But three is company When you're thinking about the things you do And you're thinking about the things you do
I want to tell you my tale How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail Do you understand there's more in a smile than in a hand
In every sky, in every kiss There's one thing that I might have missed Why am I going to A place that now belongs to you
But you were weak and so am I Let's pick it up, let's even try To live today, so why not smile Don't dream away your life 'cause it is mine, it is mine Is that a crime, is that a crime, this life is mine But the bed ain't made, it's filled full of hope I've got a skin full of dope Oh the bed ain't made but it's filled full of hope I've got a skin full of dope

"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.
