You Didn't Know The Music

You Didn't Know The Music

(Sam Coslow)

Al Bowlly accompanied by piano


You didn't know the music
And I didn't know the words

I thought we were made just for one another
Thought that we had so much in common, dear
I found to my surprise
We didn't harmonize
Now that we are far apart
I realize

Life could have been a melody
A free song of love for you and me
But you didn't know the music
And I didn't know the words

Who ever thought we'd be afraid
To blend in a tender serenade
But you didn't know the music
And I didn't know the words

Had I made a lot of pretty speeches
Might have done some good
Nightingales above us tried to teach us
But we never understood

And our love affair turned out to be
Another unfinished symphony
For you didn't know the music
And I didn't know the words
