Sunday Night is...

Double dose of the same. Al Bowlly and Bei Mir Bist du Schoen and some haunting film...


Of all the boys / girls 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 wracked my brain, hoping to explain
All the things that you do to me

Bei mir bist du schoen, please let me explain
Bei mir bist du schoen means you're grand
Bei mir bist du schoen, again I'll explain
It means you're the fairest in the land...

The Yiddish version with the Budapest Klezmer band, plus old postcards. Otherwise hauntings.
