"The Nearness of You" as written by Alex Harvey, Hugh Mckenna and David Batchelor....
When true lovers meet in Mayfair so the legend tells
Song-birds sing, winter turns to spring
Every winding street in Mayfair falls beneath the spell
I know such enchantment can be
'Cause it happened one evening to me

That certain night the night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley square

I may be right I may be wrong
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley square

The moon that lingered over London town
Poor puzzled moon he wore a frown
How could he know we two were so in love
The whole darned world seemed up-side down
The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair

And as we kissed and said goodnight
A nightingale sang in Berkeley square
How strange it was, how sweet and strange
There was never a dream to compare
With that hazy, crazy, night we met
When a nightingale sang in Berkeley square

This heart of mine beat loud and fast
Like a merry-go-round in a fair
For we were dancing cheek to cheek
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley square
When dawn came stealing up all gold and blue
To interrupt our rendezvous
I still remember how you smiled and said
