Lyrics by:  Irving Caesar
Music by:  Vincent Youmans
With Dinah Shore
Arranged by:  Axel Stordahl
From the Show:  No, No, Nanette  (1925)
Label:  Columbia Records
Recorded:  April 25, 1947
He:  I'm discontented with homes that are rented so I have invented my own,
She:  Darling this place is a lover's oasis where lights where we chase is unknown,
He:  Far from the cry of the city where flowers pretty caress the stream,
Both: Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in, don't let it abide in my dream.

He:  Picture you upon my knee, just tea for two, and two for tea.
Just me for you, and you for me alone.
She:  Nobody near us, to see and to hear us, no friends or relations
On weekend vacations, we won't have it known, dear, that we own a telephone, dear.
He:  They will brake (?) and you'll awake, and start to bake a sugar cake
For me to take for all the boys to see.
Both:  We will raise a family, a boy for you and a girl for me,
Can't you see how happy we will be.
