A Very Precious Love
The Ames Brothers Lyrics


Every show must have a song
Most everyone agrees
For what else could the ingenue
And the juvenile reprise
And so I wrote a random note

A harmony or two
And when it came to add the words
I tried describing you
A very precious love
Is what you are to me
A stairway to a star

A night in Shangril of ecstasy
Lanterns of gold
Lanterns of blue
Twinkle in the shadows
While I dance with you
An echo in the wind

Across the summer lake
Is sayin' you should know
That lanterns lose their glow

And hearts can break
So hold me close my darling
Then kiss me tenderly
And give your precious love
Your very precious love to me

I was 21 when this record was released, and now at 83, I still remember all the words.
My favorites were:
4 lads
4 Aces
Ames brothers
Diamonds

Then there were:
Kingston Trio
Peter,Paul and Mary
The Browns
Hi Los
4Freshman
McGuire Sisters
and so many others.
I really miss those days, and kind of music.
Stay safe

There as some people that find this type of music boring. It was before my time, but I like it. It has style which today's pop music does not have. Clean and sweet.

One of the most beautiful love songs ever written...

I can listen to these men sing all day. Have loved their music since the late 1950s when I was only a teenager. Our local TV station in Tucson AZ would play "videos" for 15 minutes every evening and I would watch the Ames Brothers as well as other singers from that time, so music videos are nothing new like the younger generation think they are.

I just can't stop listening to this beautiful song, sung by the Ames Brothers. Thank you for sharing this, over five years ago now.

¡Viva Campora!

Ed Ames is the only one of the brothers who is still alive sadly. "No Not Much" was a great hit by the Four Lads. Thanks for your comment!
