The Man I Love – Anita O’ Day (Gershwin composition)

When the mellow moon begins to beam,
Ev’ry night I dream a little dream;
And of course Prince Charming is the theme:
The he for me.
Although I realize as well as you
It is seldom that a dream comes true,
To me it’s clear
That he’ll appear.

Some day he’ll come along,
The man I love;
And he’ll be big and strong,
The man I love;
And when he comes my way,
I’ll do my best to make him stay.

He’ll look at me and smile
I’ll understand;
And in a little while
He’ll take my hand;
And though it seems absurd,
I know we both won’t say a word.

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday,
Maybe Monday, maybe not;
Still I’m sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday
Will be my good news day.

He’ll build a little home
Just meant for two;
From which I’ll never roam
Who would? Would you?
And so all else above,
I’m waiting for the man I love!
