Let’s Face The Music And Dance

1936 = 2018

Pay attention, observe, listen well

 

There may be trouble ahead
But while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
Let’s face the music and dance

Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then
There may be teardrops to shed
So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance, dance
Let’s face the music and dance

 

 

Words are too poor to describe the absolutely beautiful and exquisite rendition
of Mona Lisa as sung by Nat King Cole.  Thanks Mr. Cole!  You’re the greatest!

Mona Lisa

 

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa
Men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only ’cause you’re lonely
They have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there, and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art

[Instrumental Interlude]

Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there, and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa

— sung by Nat King Cole

 

Here is a video of Nat King Cole singing Mona Lisa.  Although not as nicely recorded as
the above rendition it still requires a look at it to see Mr. Cole as he was in real life. 
Mr. Cole we will always miss you and your voice. Incredible!
