    When two lovers meet in Mayfair
    So the legends tell
    Songbirds sing
    Winter turns to spring

    Every winding street in Mayfair
    Falls beneath the spell
    I know such enchantment can be
    'Cause it happened one evening to me

    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

    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, "Goodnight"
    A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

    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
