Where or When

"Где и когда". Песенка такая. Из старинного мюзикла, еще 1937 года, мирного, американского.
It is a show tune from the 1937 Rodgers and Hart musical Babes in Arms. It was first performed by Ray Heatherton and Mitzi Green. That same year, Hal Kemp recorded a popular version. It also appeared in the film version of Babes in Arms two years later.
Кто только ни пел ее потом, и поют до сих пор.

Элла Фитцджералд


Ray Heatherton, 1937


Frank Sinatra and Friends


Nat King Cole


Peggy Lee


Michael Bublé


Diana Krall


Dion & The Belmonts


Джордж Майкл


Дин Мартин


(Chorus)
[VALENTINE]
It seems we stood and talked like this before
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can't remember where or when
The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then
But I can't remember where or when
Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before
But who knows where or when?

(Verse)
[BILLIE]
When you're awake, the things you think
Come from the dreams you dream
Thought has wings
And lots of things
Are seldom what they seem
Sometimes you think you've lived before
All that you live today
Things you do
Come back to you
As though they knew the way
Oh, the tricks your mind can play!
(Chorus)
[BILLIE]
It seems we stood and talked like this before
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can't remember where or when
The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then
But I can't remember where or when
Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before
But who knows where or when?

(instrumental break)

[VALENTINE AND BILLIE]
And so it seems that we have met before
And laughed before, and loved before
But who knows where or when?
