By J. Keirn Brennan and Ernest R. Ball

WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU,
A PAL SO GOOD AND TRUE,
I'D LIKE TO LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND AND GO AND FIND
SOME PLACE THAT'S KNOWN TO GOD ALONE,
JUST A SPOT TO CALL OUR OWN.


WE'LL FIND PERFECT PEACE
WHERE JOYS NEVER CEASE
OUT THERE BENEATH THE KINDLY SKY.
WE'LL BUILD A SWEET LITTLE NEST,
SOMEWHERE IN THE WEST
AND LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY.

SOME PLACE THAT'S KNOWN TO GOD ALONE,
JUST A SPOT TO CALL OUR OWN.


WE'LL FIND PERFECT PEACE
WHERE JOYS NEVER CEASE
OUT THERE BENEATH THE KINDLY SKY.
WE'LL BUILD A SWEET LITTLE NEST,
SOMEWHERE IN THE WEST
AND LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY.
AND LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY.
