And The Angels Sing Lyrics

Artist: Benny Goodman

Benny Goodman

We meet, and the angels sing
The angels sing the sweetest song I ever heard
You speak, and the angels sing
Or am I breathing music into every word

Suddenly, the setting is strange
I can see water and moonlight beaming
Silver waves that break on some undiscovered shore - Then
Suddenly, I see it all change
Long winter nights with the candles gleaming
Through it all your face that I adore.

You smile, and the angels sing
And though it's just a gentle murmur at the start
We kiss, and the angels sing
And leave their music ringing in my heart.

You gotta sing this while listening to Herb Alpert play it, form his Going Places album. I t all makes so much sense to me now!

Lovely lyric, real poetry,
and the Ziggy Elman solo

This was produced by a variety of wonderful talents...the Benny Goodman band, his trumpeter Ziggy Elman wrote the music and America's greatest lyricist Johnny Mercer provided the words which were beautifully sung by Martha Tilton.

Benny Goodman did not write the lyrics to "And the Angels Sing" - Johnny Mercer did. Benny made recordings only.

Bless you Susan, for remembering Johnny...

Johnny Mercer WROTE the lyrics to And the Angels Sing.

Not Benny Goodman....he arranged it and I love him, but give credit where credit is due

Oh what wonderful memories this brings. Those were the good old days when you knew the words and still do.

How priviledged I feel to have listened to Big Band music and songs like these. How sad that they will never come back again.

What a well written and perfectly preformed song. Great tune and wonderful words. A timeless masterpiece for sure.

Wonderful poetry when you just look at the words themselves. Moves from the abstract word of love to detailed meaning. It doesn't get much better than this.

Forever grateful to Johnny Mercer ..the best...and to Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, too.

This era produced some of the greatest American music, much like the late 1960s and early 1970s. But the big band era produced the true classics.
