MC: Yes, here he is, CBS. Take it, Mr. Sinatra.

Frank: Last night Axel and I were discussing what songs we thought you fellows out

here at Birmingham Hospital would like to hear. Axel suggested we do a brand new one

never before done on the air. Well, you know whatever Axel says is law in the music

department. So here is "As Long As There's Music" from the RKO picture, Step Lively.

 

As long as there's music and words of romance

The spell of a theme starts you to dream there's always a chance

As long as there's music, whatever the song

 

As long as there's music for sweethearts to sing

I'll sing you, my love, melodies of the birds on the wing

My loneliest days will never seem long

As long as there's music and you are the song

As long as there's music for sweethearts to sing

I'll sing you, my love, melodies of the birds on the wing

My loneliest days will never seem long

As long as there's music and you are the song
