That certain night, the night we met,
There was magic abroad in the air;
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

I may be right, I may be wrong, 
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

(Bridge 1:)
The moon that lingered over London town -
Poor, puzzled moon, he wore a frown.
How could he know we two were  so in love 
The whole darn world seemed upside down.

The streets of town were paved with stars,
It was such a romantic affair.
And as we kissed and said "Good-bye," 
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

How strange it was, how sweet and strange; 
There was never a dream to compare
With that hazy, crazy night we met 
When a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

This heart of mine beat loud and fast, 
Like a merry go round at the fair;
For we were dancing cheek to cheek 
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Squre.

(Bridge 2:)
When dawn came stealing up all gold and blue
To interrupt our rendezvous,
I still remember how you smiled and said,
"Was that a dream or was it true?"

Our homeward step was just as light 
As the tap-dancing feet of Astaire,
And like an echo, far away, 
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

I know 'cause I was there
That night in Berkeley Square.
