Very Precious Love
Fain/Webster
Every show must have a song
Most everyone agrees
For what else could the ingenue
And the juvenile reprise

And so I wrote a random note
A harmony or two
And when it can to add the words
I tried describing you

A very precious love
Is what you are to me
A stairway to a star
A night in Shangrila of estasy

Lanterns of gold
Lanterns of blue
Twinkle in the shadows
While I dance with you

An acho in the wind
Across the summer lake
Is saying you should know
That lanterns lose their glow
And hearts can break

So hold me close my darling
Then kiss me tenderly
And give your precious love
Your very precious love to me
