You're walking along the street or you're at a party
Or else you're alone and then you suddenly dig
You're looking in someone's eyes, you suddenly realize
This could be the start of something big

You're lunching at Twenty-One and watching your diet
Declining a Charlotte Ruse, accepting a fig
When out of a clear blue sky, it's suddenly gal and guy
And this could be the start of something big

Oh, there's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what's written in the magic book
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You're up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi's
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand

There's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what's written in the book
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You're up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi's
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something
I said this could be the start of something
This could be the start of something grand
