MC: Yes, here he is, CBS, take it, Mr. Sinatra.
Frank: Last night Axel and I were discussing what songs we thought you fellows out here at Birmingham Hospital would like to hear. Axel suggested we do a brand new one never before done on the air. Well, you know whatever Axel says is law in the music department. So here is As Long As There Is Music from the RKO Pictures, Step Lively.
Sings:
As long as there’s music and words of romance,
The spell of a theme starts with you to dream there’s always a chance,
As long as there is music, whatever the song.
As long as there is music for sweethearts to sing,
I’ll sing you, my love, melodies of the birds on the wing.
My loneliest days will never seem long,.
As long as there’s music and you are the song.

As long as there is music for sweethearts to sing,
I’ll sing you, my love, melodies of the birds on the wing.
My loneliest days will never seem long,.
As long as there’s music and you are the song
