Some Enchanted Evening
Jay & The Americans Lyrics

Some enchanted evening you may see a stranger
You may see a stranger across a crowded room
And somehow you know, you know even then
That somewhere you'll see her again and again

Some enchanted evening, someone may be laughing
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room
And night after night, as strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams
Who can explain it, who can tell you why
Fools give you reasons, wise men never try

Some enchanted evening, when you find your true love
When you feel her call you across a crowded room
Then fly to her side and make her your own
Or all through your life you may dream all alone

Once you have found her, never let her go
Once you have found her, never let her go

Written by: Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers

Jay Black is one of those rare artist that comes along once in a life time! Bravo!

Keith Karvelis

May he rest in peace.


Beautiful song and what a great voice Jay Black has and the great harmonies of the Americans, just such a pleasure to listen to and enjoy.


Never heard this version until now. Wow. Just added it to my growing list of Jay Black singing and backed by The Americans. Jay Black could have easily been a world class Opera singer. Does anyone out there know of his early vocal training? I think he was just BORN with it. There is nobody today that sounds like this. Thanks for posting.

Michael Shaughnessy

Interesting post- I do not know if he had any early vocal training

Martin Carman

It was played on the radio constantly.

Evan Tyler

It's just not the popular style anymore. Some guys who do barbershop come pretty close, but it's a fringe thing

The most outstanding cover of this song. The harmony of the JBA vocalists with Jay seamlessly easing in makes this a classic. Da best!!!

Years ago I had a stereo system that could vibrate the paint off the walls and my girls love it on Saturday mornings when I would crank it up with Jay and the Americans. Wonderful memories.


Me encanta Jay & The Americans. Los amo, tiene una voz grandiosa.
