A Foggy Day
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


I was a stranger in the city
Out of town were the people I knew
I had that feeling of self-pity
What to do?
What to do?
What to do?
The outlook was decidedly blue
But as I walked through the dreary streets alone
It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known
A foggy day
In London town
Had me low
And it had me down

I viewed the morning
With much alarm
The British Museum
Had lost its charm

How long, I wondered
Could this thing last?
But the age of miracles
It hadn't passed

For suddenly
I saw you standing right there
And in foggy London town
The sun was shining, shining, shining, shining, shining everywhere

How long, I wondered
Could this thing possibly last?
But the age of miracles
It hadn't passed

For suddenly
I saw you standing right there
And in foggy London town
The sun was shining everywhere

I was a stranger in the city
Out of town were the people I knew
I had that feeling of self pity
What to do, what to do, what to do?
The outlook was decidedly blue
But as I walked through the foggy streets alone
It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known

(Chorus)
A foggy day in London town
Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with alarm
The British museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London town
The sun was shining everywhere

A foggy day in London town
It had me low and it had me down
I viewed the morning with much alarm
The British museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London town
The sun was shining upside-down!

Ahhh, what a beautiful song.
I love the unfolding story to where the sun was finally shining because he saw the women of his dreams.
I don't care if people say it's cheesy or whatever, it's a great progression!

Tresean Cann

Better than this by infinity.

Only a reject would say anything Frank does is "cheesy".. rap is cheesy in the extreme.

Grenville Phillips

What a fabulous recording, which captures every nuance of Sinatra's wonderful timbre!

Yvette morton

Lovely song that tells a story. Sinatra delivery right on the mark.

Andy Ward

This song holds a certain poignancy in my heart. My father sang a very quiet, gentle rendition of it whilst in a hospital bed a few weeks ago. I had never heard him sing much, least of all Frank Sinatra...he passed away a few days later.....i find myself humming or singing it myself now.

This recording is from Frank's Capitol Records album "Songs for Young Lovers". I first discovered Frank Sinatra when I was in high school, and this was the first of his albums I bought, about 8 years after its release. My favorite song on the album is the lovely "Violets For Your Furs".

Alexis Ortiz

Would always hear this playing at the Resort I used to work for and even to this day brings back good memories working there, RIP a true singer with passion in his songs.

Eric Fontaine

I can't believe I've never heard this version... ♫ A Foggy Day has regained its charm ♫

I’ve just started listening to Sinatra properly, I used to listen to songs here and there, but I never appreciated his voice before, luckily I’m 15 so I have many years in the future to appreciate his music more.
