It Happened In Monterey

It Happened In Monterey

(Mabel Wayne / Billy Rose)

Acc. by orchestra and compered by John Watt

It happened in Monterey a long time ago
I met her in Monterey where lights softly glow
Stars and steel guitars and luscious lips as red as wine
Broke somebody's heart and I'm afraid that it was mine

It happened in Monterey without thinking twice
I left her and threw away the key to paradise
My indiscreet heart longs for the sweetheart
That I left in old Monterey
