Sing to Me Mr. C. - 1961

This Nearly Was MinePerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
One dream in my heart, 
one love to be living for, 
one love to be living for, 
this nearly was mine!
 
One girl for my dreams, 
one partner in paradise,
this promise of paradise,
this nearly was mine!
 
Close to my heart she came,
only to fly away!
Only to fly as day 
flies from moonlight!
 
Now, now I'm alone
still dreaming of paradise,
still sayin' that paradise
once nearly was mine!
 
< instrumental break >
 
Only to fly as day 
flies from moonlight!
 
Now, now I'm alone
still dreaming of paradise,
still sayin' that paradise
once nearly was mine!
