The Moment Of Truth
Tony Bennett
Written by Collen G. Satterwhite and Frank Scott

Apparently not charted by anyone


If you hear music when she's near you
And Christmas comes ev'ry day of the year
Then you must know why it's the first clue
That the moment of truth is near

If ev'ry time she glances your way
A million bells start to ring loud and clear
And, after one kiss, you yell "Mayday!"
Then the moment of truth is near

There will come a day when she looks at you
Thrills you through and through and calls your name
That will be the day when you say "I do"
'cause you've discovered that you've grown tired of playin' the game"

And then you both know you're through schemin'
*"Oh Promise Me"* starts to sing in your ear
You're wide-awake, boy, you're not dreamin'
'cause when you say "I do", the moment of truth
At last is here!

There will come a day when she looks at you
Thrills you through and through and calls your name
That will be the day when you say "I do"
'cause you've discovered that you've grown tired of playin' the game"

And then you both know you're through schemin'
*"Oh Promise Me"* starts to sing in your ear
You're wide-awake, boy, you're not dreamin'
'cause when you say "I do", the moment of truth
At last is here!

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: *Oh Promise Me* is a song traditionally played at weddings
