Till There Was You


Songwriter: Meredith Willson
Performer: Barbara Cook, Shirley Jones, The Beatles
Category: Golden Oldie

Meredith Willson wrote this song for The Music Man, his musical play, in 1957. After the Broadway and film versions were done, several artists covered it as well. The most notable one is probably the version recorded by The Beatles, who had never covered any Broadway repertoire before this, and never did after it either. They released it on two albums - With The Beatles in 1963, and Meet the Beatles! in 1964. They also performed it on their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.

Other artists include jazz sax player Sonny Rollins, and singers Anita Bryant, Peggy Lee and Katherine Jenkins.

LYRICS

There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing
No I never heard them at all
Till there was you

There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No I never saw them at all
Till there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you
