Skylark
Johnny Mercer / Hoagy Carmichael // 1941

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

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?

And in your lonely flight
Haven't you heard the music in 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?
