Lightly Latin - 1966

The Shadow of Your Smile
( Love Theme from "The Sandpiper" )
 
One day we walked along the sand
one day in early spring . . .Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
You held a piper in your hand
to mend it's broken wing 
Now, I'll remember many a day 
an' many a lonely mile 
The echo of a piper's song 
an' the shadow of a smile! 
 
The shadow of your smile 
when you are gone . . .
will color all my dreams
and light the dawn . . .
Look into my eyes, my love, and see 
all the lovely things you are . . . you are to me!
 
Our wistful little star 
was far too high . . .
A teardrop kissed your lips
and so did I . . .
Now, when I remember spring, 
all the joy that love can bring . . . 
I will be remembering, 
the shadow of your smile!
 
< instrumental break >
 
Now, when I remember spring, 
all the joy that love can bring . . . 
I will be remembering, 
the shadow of your smile!
