Testo della canzone Wishing 17 Dec 1910 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:]
In the days of fairy tales, most any wish was granted
Granted by some fairy brave
Let’s suppose a fairy rose in fairy clothes from head to toes
And granted us the wish we’d crave
Would you wish for diamonds, or would you wish for pearls
Would you wish to rule the land and sea
Would you wish a crown to rest upon your golden curls?
The maiden sweetly answered Not for me

I’d wish for a night in June
A silv’ry moon real soon
A moon that makes you want to spoon
And softly croon love’s tune
Then a tree that I could trust
A bench that holds just two
Then I’d wish for Cupid’s loving dish
And then I’d wish for you

[2nd verse:]
Why should I profess to sigh for precious pearls and diamonds
When my ev’ry sigh means you?
All the gold the world may hold its wealth untold, I would unfold
To hold a place that just holds two
Hold a place that holds a face, that holds a case of bliss
And that case of bliss would hold you too
Such a place would make me trace upon your face a kiss
The fellow answered, Here’s just what I’d do
