Lyrics BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA,
BUONA SERA,
IT IS TIME
TO SAY GOODNIGHT
TO NAPOLI.
THOUGH IT'S HARD FOR US
TO WHISPER,
BUONA SERA
WITH THAT OLD MOON
ABOVE THE MEDITTERANEAN SEA.
IN THE MORNIN'
SIGNORINA
WE'LL GO WALKIN',
WHEN THE MOUNTAINS
HELP THE SUN
COME INTO SIGHT.
AND BY THE LITTLE JEWELRY SHOP
WE'LL STOP AND LINGER
WHILE I BUY A WEDDING RING
FOR YOUR FINGER.
IN THE MEANTIME
LET ME TELL YOU
THAT I LOVE YOU.
BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA
KISS ME GOODNIGHT,
BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA
KISS ME GOODNIGHT.

Lyrics verse 1:
I ALWAYS THOUGHT
THAT I'D PREFER SINGLE BLESSEDNESS,
THOUGHT THAT I'D LIKE TO STAY FREE,
I NEVER THOUGHT
MY TIME WOULD COME TO MARRY,
NO WEDDING BELLS FOR ME.
I'VE CHANGED MY MIND AFTER ALL,
YOU ARE THE ONE MADE ME FALL
FOR...

Chorus:
I NEVER KNEW
I COULD LOVE ANYBODY,
HONEY, LIKE I'M LOVING YOU
I COULDN'T REALIZE
WHAT A PAIR OF EYES
AND A BABY SMILE COULD DO
I CAN'T SLEEP, I CAN'T EAT,
I NEVER KNEW
A SINGLE SOUL COULD BE SO SWEET,
I NEVER KNEW
I COULD LOVE ANYBODY,
HONEY, LIKE I'M LOVING YOU.

verse 2:
I USED TO SMILE
AT ALL THE SONGS THAT WERE POPULAR,
NOTHING BUT LOVE IN EACH SONG.
I USED TO THINK
THOSE KIND OF SONGS WERE FOOLISH,
NOW I ADMIT I'M WRONG.
LOVE SONGS ARE PART OF MY PLAN,
SHOW ME THE MINISTER MAN
FOR...

Chorus:
I NEVER KNEW
I COULD LOVE ANYBODY,
HONEY, LIKE I'M LOVING YOU
I COULDN'T REALIZE
WHAT A PAIR OF EYES
AND A BABY SMILE COULD DO
I CAN'T SLEEP, I CAN'T EAT,
I NEVER KNEW
A SINGLE SOUL COULD BE SO SWEET,
I NEVER KNEW
I COULD LOVE ANYBODY,
HONEY, LIKE I'M LOVING YOU.

Lyrics verse:
I'VE NEITHER WEALTH
NOR POWER,
BUT NOW THAT YOU SAID
YOU'RE MINE
WHEREVER I GO,
WHATEVER I DO,
I'LL BE DOIN' FINE.
FOR...

Chorus:
I'LL GET BY
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.
THOUGH THERE BE RAIN
AND DARKNESS TOO,
I'LL NOT COMPLAIN,
I'LL SEE IT THROUGH.
THOUGH I MAY BE FAR AWAY,
IT'S TRUE,
SAY, WHAT CARE I, DEAR,
I'LL GET BY
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.

I'LL GET BY
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.
THOUGH THERE BE RAIN
AND DARKNESS TOO,
I'LL NOT COMPLAIN,
I'LL SEE IT THROUGH.
POVERTY MAY COME TO ME,
THAT'S TRUE.
SAY, WHAT CARE I,
DEAR,
I'LL GET BY
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.

Lyrics WHY THIS FEELING?
WHY THIS GLOW?
WHY THE THRILL
WHEN YOU SAY, HELLO?
IT'S A STRANGE
AND TENDER MAGIC
YOU DO.
MISTER WONDERFUL,
THAT'S YOU!

WHY THIS TREMBLING
WHEN YOU SPEAK?
WHY THIS JOY
WHEN YOU TOUCH MY CHEEK?
I MUST TELL YOU
WHAT MY HEART KNOWS IS TRUE:
MISTER WONDERFUL,
THAT'S YOU!

AND WHY THIS LONGING
TO KNOW YOUR CHARMS
TO SPEND FOREVER
HERE IN YOUR ARMS!

OH, THERE'S MUCH MORE
I COULD SAY,
BUT THE WORDS
KEEP SLIPPING AWAY
AND I'M LEFT
WITH ONLY ONE POINT OF VIEW:
MISTER WONDERFUL,
THAT'S YOU!

ONE MORE THING,
THEN I'M THROUGH
MISTER WONDERFUL,
MISTER WONDERFUL,
MISTER WONDERFUL,
I LOVE YOU!

Lyrics S'POSIN' I SHOULD FALL IN LOVE
WITH YOU,
DO YOU THINK
YOU COULD LOVE ME TOO?
S'POSIN' I SHOULD HOLD YOU
AND CARESS YOU,
WOULD IT IMPRESS YOU
OR DISTRESS YOU?
S'POSIN' I SHOULD SAY,
FOR YOU I YEARN,
WOULD YOU THINK
I'M SPEAKING
OUT OF TURN?
AND S'POSIN'
I DECLARE IT,
WOULD YOU TAKE MY LOVE
AND SHARE IT?
I'M NOT S'POSIN' -
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU!

Lyrics verse 1:
THERE'S SWEETNESS
IN THE CALL
OF THE WOODLAND DOVE
AS HIS LOVESONG
ECHOS THROUGH THE TREES,
THERE'S SWEETNESS
IN THE ROSE
WITH ITS SYMBOL OF LOVE,
FLOATING ON A SUMMER BREEZE.
BUT NOTHING CAN COMPARE
TO THE SWEETNESS
OF THE ONE AND ONLY ONE
I LOVE.

Chorus:
SWEET AND LOVELY,
SWEETER
THAN THE ROSES IN MAY,
SWEET AND LOVELY,
HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT HER
MY WAY.
SKIES ABOVE ME
NEVER WERE
AS BLUE AS HER EYES,
AND SHE LOVES ME,
WHO WOULD WANT
A SWEETER SURPRISE.

verse 2:
WHEN SHE NESTLES IN MY ARMS
SO TENDERLY
THERE'S A THRILL
THAT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS.
IN MY HEART
A SONG OF LOVE
IS TAUNTING ME,
MELODY HAUNTING ME.

Chorus:
SWEET AND LOVELY,
SWEETER
THAN THE ROSES IN MAY,
AND SHE LOVES ME,
THERE IS NOTHING MORE
I CAN SAY.

Lyrics WHEN DAY IS DONE
AND SHADOWS FALL
I DREAM OF YOU.
WHEN DAY IS DONE
I THINK OF ALL THE JOYS
WE KNEW.
THAT YEARNING,
RETURNING,
TO HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS,
WON'T GO LOVE,
I KNOW LOVE,
WITHOUT YOU,
NIGHT HAS LOST ITS CHARMS.

WHEN DAY IS DONE
AND GRASS IS WET
WITH TWILIGHT'S DEW,
MY LONELY HEART
IS SINKING WITH THE SUN.
ALTHOUGH I MISS
YOUR TENDER KISS
THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH,
I MISS YOU MOST OF ALL
WHEN DAY IS DONE.
