John Blackburn & Karl Suessdorf. Written in 1944, extolling the beauty of Vermont in every season. Unusual poetical lyrics that do not rhyme, but all the A sections are haiku. This really should be Vermont's state song.

Lyrics

Written by Consuelo Velasquez A passionate song of seduction in Spanish. Bésame, bésame mucho – como se fueras esta noche la última vez. Bésame mucho - que tengo miedo perderte, perderte otra vez. Quiero tenerte muy cerca; mirarme en tus ojos; verte junto a mí. Pienso que tal vez mañana yo ya estaré lejos, muy lejos de ti. Bésame, bésame mucho... (Loose translation to English) Kiss me deeply, as you did that last night. Kiss me, for I fear losing you again. I want to keep you so close; watch myself in your eyes; see you next to me. Perhaps tomorrow I'll be distant from you. So kiss me...

Trio: Clay, Rausch & Dunlap.
