Look At That Face
An email from a friend in Brussels sings the praise of the incredible facades of the buildings. Nothing like the schlock that developers are putting up here in the city.
Brussels? At the rate the exchange rate is going, I'll never afford it. I thought "Look At That Face" would be a good match. I was looking for Carmen McRae's version. I had to settle for Brooklyn's Barbra.
Look at that face just look at it!
Look at that fabulous face of yours,
I knew first look I took at it,
This was the face that the world adores,
Look at those eyes,
As wise and as deep as the sea,
Look at that nose,
It shows what a nose should be!
As for your smile, it's lyrical
Friendly and warm as a summer day,
Your face is just a miracle,
Where could I ever find words to say
The way that it makes me happy,
Whatever the time or place,
I will find in no book,
What I find when I look at that face!
