One Of Those Songs    (1958)

Well this is one of those songs that you hear now and then,
You don't know just where, you don't know just when,
It's one of those songs that are over and then,
It's one of those songs that starts playing again.

Yes, it's just one of those songs that you hear for a while,
That come into fashion and go out of style,
It's one of those songs that you think you forgot,
But it's one of those songs you cannot!

Because it's one of those songs that can make you recall
A ride in the springtime, a walk in the fall,
A day in the country, a night on the town,
The sun coming up or the rain coming down.

Or else the evening you parted, the morning you met,
The love of your life you can never forget,
The reason is simple, the memory belongs,
To one of those wonderful songs!

Well, this is one of those songs that's so easy to hear,
You listen just once, then you play it by ear,
It's hummed on verandas, and strummed on guitars,
And all you remember is Lah-dee-dah-dah!

But later on you'll recall it in some other year,
You may start to smile or you may shed a tear,
You'll find that one part of your lifetime belongs
To one of those wonderful songs!
