You Were Never Lovelier, 1942
VERSE
I was never able
To recite a fable
That would make the party bright.
Sitting at the table,
I was never able
To become the host's delight.
But now you've given me my after-dinner story;
I'll just describe you as you are in all your glory.
REFRAIN
You were never lovelier,
You were never so fair;
Dreams were never lovelier-
Pardon me if I stare.
Down the sky the moonbeams fly to light your face;
I can only say they chose the proper place.
You were never lovelier,
And to coin a new phrase,
I was never luckier
In my palmiest days.
Make a note, and you can quote me, honor bright,
You were never lovelier than you are tonight.
