Dancing On the Ceiling
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


The world is lyrical
Because a miracle
Has brought my lover to me
Though she's some other place, her face I see
At night I creep in bed
And never sleep in bed
But look above in the air
And to my greatest joy, my love is there

She dances overhead
On the ceiling near my bed
In my sight
All through the night
I try to hide in vain
Underneath my counterpane
But there's my love
Up there above
I whisper, "Go away, my lover
It's not fair"
But I'm so grateful to discover
That she's still there
I love my ceiling more
Since it is a dancing floor
Just for my love

And never sleep in bed
But look above in the air
And to my greatest joy, my love is there
She dances overhead
On the ceiling near my bed
In my sight
All through the night
I try to hide in vain
Underneath my counterpane
But there's my love
Up there above
I whisper, "Go away, my lover
It's not fair"
But I'm so grateful to discover
That she's still there
I love my ceiling more
Since it is a dancing floor
Just for my love

He was and for me will always be, the greatest. Few approach him, none surpass him. The ultimate one-man orchestra.
These lyrics are right up there, so much said in so few words.

Mikki S

smooth as silk and just as rich. makes a grown woman cry. to me the most beautiful song he has ever sung. the lyrics are phenomenal. The story is unforgettable. Sinatra is too sweet. I miss you Francis Albert.

Perry Weiner

Lorenz Hart, the great lyricist. Gay and drank himself to any early grave at age 47!

Again, great lyric by Lorenz Hart!

The favourite song of terpsichorean flies, poured gently by Mr S over a respectful, inventive arrangement. A mystical page from the Great American songbook, that civilised and entertaining volume of much magic. Thanks for posting it.

Católico Desenhista

Cynthia Hawkins

Ah, yes....the verse...THAT sets the mood for the rest of the song.
