Here I’ll Stay

Writer(s): Alan Jay Lerner / Kurt Weill

From the Show: Love Life (1948)
Your Hit Parade, 1/15/49

There’s a far land I’m told where I’ll find a field of gold,
But here I’ll stay with you.
And they say there’s an isle steeped in clover,
Where your heart wears a smile all day through,
But I know well they’re wrong and I know where I belong,
And here I’ll stay with you.
For that land is a sandy illusion,
It’s the theme of a dream gone astray,
And the world others woo, I can find loving you,
And so here I’ll stay.
And so here I’ll stay.
