A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
As Sung by: Tony Bennett
>From the CD: Perfectly Frank

Transcribed by Mark Craft.

Note: This is all my own work and only an approximation of the song as
interpreted by Tony. It is not in Tony's key -- and I'm no Ralph Sharon!


That [C7] certain [Am] night, the [Em] night we [C7]met
There was [F] magic a[E7]broad in the [Am] air [Fm6]
There were [C7] angels [G7]dining [C7]at the [Fm6]Ritz
And a [C7]nightingale [Am] sang in [Dm7]Berke[G7]ley [C7] Square

[short bridge, try C7, Am, G7]

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

[short bridge, try C7, Am, B7]

[chorus:]
[E] The moon that [C#m7] lingered over [F#m] London [B7] town
[G#m7] Poor puzzled moon, [F#m7] he wore a [B7] frown
[E] How could he [C#m7] know we two were [F#m] so in [B7] love
[G#m7] The whole darned world seemed [Dm] upside [G7] 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

[Repeat chorus with vocal or instrumental break]

My homeward steps were just as light
As the tap dancing feet of Astaire
And like an echo, far away
A [C7]nightingale [Am] sang in [Dm7]Berke[G7]ley [C7] Square
I [Dm7] know 'cause [G7] I was[Em7] there [Dm7]
That night in [G7] Berkeley [C] Square
[hit chord on each word]
[C7] I [C7] was [C7] there [C7]
