The Very Thought of You

The Very Thought of You As I reflect on “The Very Thought of You,” I surmise that “you” can be used to suggest a single individual or the universal “you” representing a group, a gathering, community, or collective of individuals. As a song, the lyrics were written and sung by Ray Noble, but the classic lyricism and emotional laden quality of the words found other expressive voices such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Doris Day, Kay Starr, Sarah Vaughn, Rod Stewart, Billie Holiday, Etta James, Elvis Costello, Johnny Hartman, Nancy Wilson, Tony Bennett and probably countless others. The very thought of you And I forget to do The little ordinary things That everyone ought to do I´m living in a kind of daydream I´m happy as a king and foolish Though it may seem to me That´s everything The mere idea of you The longing here for you You´ll never know How slow the moments go Till I´m near to you I see your face in every flower You eyes in stars above
