Lyrics:

"The Room Above Her"

from SHOW BOAT (1936)

music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II (1936)

 

GAYLORD RAVENAL:

I have the room above her.
She doesn't know I love her.
How could she know I love her,
Sitting in her room below?
Sitting in her room below,
How could she know
How far a dream could go?

Sometimes we meet. She smiles
And oh, her smile's divine.
It's such a treat to hear her say,
'Hasn't the weather been fine?'

I blush and stammer badly.
My heart is beating madly.
Then she goes into her room,
And I go sadly up to mine.

A lover more impetuous than I
Would say his say and know the reason why
When I get my chance
I let my chance go by.

I have the room above her.
She doesn't know I love her.
How could she know I love her,
Sitting in her room below?
Sitting in her room below,
How could she know
How far a dream could go?

MAGNOLIA HAWKS:

Sometimes we meet. He smiles
And oh, his smile's divine.
It's such a treat to hear him say,
'Hasn't the weather been fine?'

I blush and stammer badly.
My heart is beating madly.
Then he goes up to his room,
And I go sadly into mine.
