The Andrews Sisters - Bei Mir Bist Du Schon

Of all the boys I've known and I've known some
Until I first met you I was lonesome
And when you came in sight dear my heart grew light
And this old world seemed new to me
You're really swell I have to admit you
Deserve expressions that really fit you
And so I've racked my brain hoping to explain
All the things that you do to me
Bei mir bist du schon please let me explain
Bei mir bist du schon means you're grand
Bei mir bist du schon again I'll explain
It means you're the fairest in the land
I could say Bella bella even say Voonderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are
I've tried to explain bei mir bist du schon
So kiss me and say you understand
Bei mir bist du schon you've heard it all before
but let me try to explain
Bei mir bist du schon means that you're grand
Bei mir bist du schon it's such an old refrain
and yet I should explain
It means I am begging for your hand
I could say Bella bella even say Voonderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are
I could say Bella bella even say Voonderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are
I've tried to explain bei mir bist du schon
So kiss me and say that you will understand

Bei Mir Bist Du Schön - The Andrews Sisters w/Lyrics

This was their 1938 hit which made them famous. After this recording, they went off into the world and became America's singing AND dancing gals. Trust me ...
