The Very Thought of You
Jon Batiste Lyrics

The very thought of you
And I forget to do
The little ordinary things
That everyone ought to do

I'm living in a kind of daydream
But yes I'm happy as a king
And foolish though I may seem
To me she's everything
The mere idea of you
The longing here for you
You'll never know
How slow
The moments go
Until I'm near to you
Oh baby

I see your face in every flower
And your eyes in stars above
It's just the very thought of you
My love

Seriously? This was unrehearsed? It's perfection. Takes me back to those halcyon days when singers like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald reigned supreme. Thank you!


When people know what they're doing, yes, performances like this are possible. Isn't it wonderful?
You named two ladies who are perfect examples of such people; their legacy continues.

It's also a pun on the Fisher King legend.

John Burke

Reading David Lodge's very entertaining novel "Small World" made me aware that one meaning of "halcyon" is the bird known as the kingfisher. The bird itself doesn't appear in the novel, but an important character is Arthur Kingfisher, whose appearance launches a period in the story that can be characterized as "halcyon days" for some of the other characters. It's kind of an elaborate academic pun. The novel is really fun--my favorite of David Lodge's books that I've read, though I liked "Changing Places" too.
