By a Waterfall
Words by irving Kahal and music by Sammy Fain.
-Introduced by Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler in the film Footlight Parade.
I appreciate the simple things,
Cause I'm awf'lly fond of getting,
Love in a natural setting.
This is what I call the simple things,
Just a winding stream,
Where I can drift and dream
And now I'm waiting for you.
By a waterfall, I'm calling you-oo-oo-oo,
We can share it all beneath a ceiling of blue.
We'll spend a heavenly day,
Here where the whispering waters play.
There's a whippoorwill that's calling you-oo-oo-oo,
By a waterfall, he's dreaming too.
There's a magic melody,
Mother Nature sings to me,
Beside a waterfall with you.
