"Night and Day"

music and words by Cole Porter

 Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom-tom
When the evening shadows fall,
Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall,
Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops
When the summer shower is through,
So a voice within me keeps repeating,
"You. You. You."

Night and Day, you are the one;
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun.
Whether near to me or far,
It's no matter, darling, where you are.
I think of you, Night and Day.

Day and Night, why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go?
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room,
I think of you, Night and Day.

Night and Day, under the hide of me,
There's an oh-so-hungry yearning burning inside of me.
And it's torment won't be through
'Til you let me spend my life making love to you,
Day and Night, Night and Day.
