Lyrics verse:
IN SOME CUBAN TOWN
YOU STOP
WATCHING AN OLD MAKER
OF SHAWLS:
A QUAINT LITTLE MAN
WHOSE GAY COLORED BAZAAR
STANDS NEAR THE WALLS.
HE SMILES
THROUGH HIS BEARD
AND SPINS
HEAVENLY DREAMS
FOR EV'RY MAID.
A SHAWL
IN HIS HAND,
HIS CALL
REACHES THEIR HEARTS
AS THEY PARADE.

Chorus:
MY SHAWL
PRETTY LADY,
TRY IT ON YOU.
BUY MY SHAWL
SPUN IN MAGIC,
WISHES COME TRUE.
IT'S GLORY
WEAVES A STORY
OF LOVE,
DREAMS OLD
BUT NEW.
MY SHAWL
BRINGS A ROMANCE
MAYBE FOR YOU.

Lyrics A HEART THAT'S TRUE,
THERE ARE SUCH THINGS,
A DREAM FOR TWO,
THERE ARE SUCH THINGS.
SOMEONE TO WHISPER,
DARLING,
YOU'RE MY GUIDING STAR.,
NOT CARING WHAT YOU OWN
BUT JUST WHAT YOU ARE.
A PEACEFUL SKY,
THERE ARE SUCH THINGS,
A RAINBOW HIGH
WHERE HEAVEN SINGS.
SO HAVE A LITTLE FAITH
AND TRUST
IN WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS,
YOU'LL REACH A STAR
BECAUSE THERE ARE SUCH THINGS.

Alt. Title What A Difference A Day Makes

Writers Stanley Adams, Maria Grever

Genres Standard, Pop, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Ballad

Recorded 1975

Lyrics WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MADE,
TWENTY FOUR LITTLE HOURS,
BROUGHT THE SUN
AND THE FLOWERS,
WHERE THERE USED TO BE
RAIN.

MY YESTERDAY
WAS BLUE DEAR,
TODAY
I'M PART OF YOU
DEAR,
MY LONELY NIGHTS
ARE THROUGH
DEAR,
SINCE YOU SAID
YOU WERE MINE.

WHAT A DIFF'RENCE A DAY MAKES,
THERE'S A RAINBOW
BEFORE ME,
SKIES ABOVE
CAN'T BE STORMY,
SINCE THAT MOMENT
OF BLISS
THAT THRILLING KISS.
IT'S HEAVEN
WHEN YOU,
FIND ROMANCE
ON YOUR MENU.
WHAT A DIFF'RENCE A DAY MADE,
AND THE DIFF'RENCE
IS YOU.
