Last Of The Romantics
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


We're gonna built a home from stone instead of steel
Our love will make it real
It's a cottage down the lane
We'll fill the fireplace with logs and cracklin' sticks
We'll lie near by the bricks as we hear the pristine rain
But 'till we build that home we'll lock our bed room door
Make plans and love within this one room eight by four
I'll never ask for much I'll only ask for more
And as our love is do I'll turn and say to you
We are the last of the romantics
Reaching for love before we lose it to the past
For at the last we are romantic
Free from time and space
We can build a place where all that is romantic can last
So close your eyes and see my clearing in the trees
Your face will feel the breeze and the wind is lace with pine
The sun will rise to where the hills embrace the sky
A stream will wander by like a rolling ball of twine
You must believe I'll make it real I can't say when
But harder times than this have been and even then
A million loves have lived and love lives on again
As long as there are two who say the way we do
We are the last of the romantics
Reaching for love before we lose it to the past
For at the last we are romantic
Free from time and space
We can build a place where all that is romantic can last
We are the last of the romantics
Reaching for love before we lose it to the past
For at the last we are romantic
Free from time and space
We can build a place where all that is romantic can last

I think Engelbert could just have the best quality of voice and control of any male singer in popular recorded music history. What do you think?

Jason Elias

One of the best, no question--especially around this era. The only issue with Engelbert is the song choices--but on this song, he got very lucky and we did too, it's a career performance.

Kathy Jarvis

I love this mans music. He’s a talent like no other. I grew up listening to this legend, and understand why women the world over love this man.

A very melting and romantic song! 

Madeleine Grinyer

Engelbert: THE most beautiful voice EVER!

Tony Montana

My mother had this 8 track (remember those?). She listened to Engelbert and Tom Jones all the time. I heard them so much I fell in love with their music.

Uno de los mejores cantantes del mundo! Por mucho. Según la revista LIFE, junto a TOM JONES, era el mejor pagado y solicitado de las vegas. Por un buen rato en ese circuito, conformaron todo un monopolio en el shobiz de la epoca

Ron Acheson

This song by the very best singer the world has ever known...is how I feel about my relationship...amazing

Better than the original. Should've been a huge hit!
