Some Enchanted Evening
Richard Rodgers
Oscar Hammerstein II
August, 1967
February 1, 1967

Some Enchanted Evening is a song from the 1949 musical South Pacific, written by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Frank Sinatra recorded this song for his 1967 Reprise album, The World We Knew.


Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger,
You may see a stranger across a crowded room,
And somehow you know, you know even then,
That somewhere you'll see here again and again.
Some enchanted evening, someone may be laughing,
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room,
And night after night, as strange as it seems,
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams.
Who can explain it, who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons, wise men never try.
Some enchanted evening, when you find your true love,
When you feel her call you across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side and make her your own,
Or all through your life you may dream all alone.
Once you have found her, never let her go,
Once you have found her, never let her go.
