Sway
Julie London Lyrics


When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like the lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more
Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance, you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me
Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway, I grow weak
I can hear the violins long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway, I grow weak
I can hear the swell of violins long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

SWAY


When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like the lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance, you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway, I grow weak

I can hear the swell of violins long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway, I grow weak

I can hear the swell of violins long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

I absolutely love the sound of her voice. The epitome of "Sultry"

That's what my dictionary app said :

"Go listen Julie London sing"

Winston Mathew Bollockchops

She is the real Jessica rabbit

Melissa

The softness of the instruments is how i always imagined this song to be. Most other versions have the trumpet section blowing everyone way.

Bob Downes

Agree !
Trumpets on this one sound as if they could have been played by a Mexican Band.

yes y e s sway ! sway me smooth, a softness to it, a strength yes , even a tension
but not a sharpness your so right ! the big horn versions are but weak interpretation
how does anyone get overpowering horns out of "like a lazy ocean hugs the shore"
if you sing you should work up your own version, begin with nothing and start from just reading it
as a poem, slowly add the melody

Dean is not the onlyone who can sing it magically

Buble?

uberschnil the great

It's certainly good, but dean has that magic technique that makes me go weak in my opinion.
He has thrillers only he knows how.
