Look Of Love, The

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen / arr. Nelson Riddle
From CD Softly As I Leave You
From Frank’s 1963 film “Come Blow Your Horn”

I’ve seen the look of a baby with a rattle,
I’ve seen the look of a hero in a battle
I’ve seen the look of a heartsick turtle love
But the look that leaves you real shook is the look of love.
I’ve seen the look of a jockey on a winner,
I’ve seen the look of a fat man having dinner
I’ve seen the look of those space men up above
But the look that closes the book is the look of love
It’s thunder, it’s lightning, the gentlest breeze,
It’s friendly, it’s frightening
And more surprising than an elephant’s sneeze
I’ve seen the look every single blushing bride has
I’ve seen the look that the fellow by her side has
But there’s one look that I’d give my life to see
We are locked in a wondrous embrace and there on that fabulous face
Is that fabulous look of love for me
(instrumental)
But there’s one look that I’d give my life to see
We are locked in a wondrous embrace and there on that fabulous face
Is that fabulous look of love for me
That’s what I want to see, that look of love for me.
