Puttin'-On-The-Ritz-Endorsed Standard

Where Or When

Lyrics by: Lorenz Hart. Music by: Richard Rodgers. From the Show: Babes In Arms (1937).

When you're awake, the things you think Come from the dream you dream. Thought has wings, and lots of things Are seldom what they seem. Sometimes you think you've lived before All that you live today. Things you do come back to you As though they knew the way -- Oh the tricks your mind can play.

It seems we stood and talked like this before. We looked at each other in the same way then. But I can’t remember where or when. The clothes you’re wearing are the clothes you wore. The smile you are smiling you were smiling then. But I can’t remember where or when. Some things that happen for the first time Seem to be happening again. And so it seems that we have met before, And laughed before, and loved before. But who knows where or when.
