as recorded by Julie London
with Pete King & his Orchestra
Tall boy, tall boy, reaching to the sky,
You don't even notice me as you pass by.
Tall boy, tall boy, head among the clouds,
You can't hear my tiny heart through the noisy crowds.
There you go,
Full of dreams I envy so!
Must I love you from afar?
Can't you hand me down a star?
Tall boy, ooh tall boy, towering high above me,
Won't you please smile down on me and love me?
