Perry Como - "Some Enchanted Evening" lyrics

Some Enchanted Evening

Artist: Perry Como (peak Billboard position 1 in 1949)
Words and Music by Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers
From the musical production "South Pacific"


Some enchanted evening you may see a stranger
You may see a stranger across a crowded room
And somehow you know, you know even then
That somewhere you'll see her again and again

Some enchanted evening, someone may be laughing
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room
And night after night, as strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams

Who can explain it, who can tell you why
Fools give you reasons, wise men never try

Some enchanted evening, when you find your true love
When you feel her call you across a crowded room
Then fly to her side and make her your own
Or all through your life you may dream all alone

Once you have found her, never let her go
Once you have found her, never let her go
