You’re my everything, everything I need
You’re the song I sing and the book I read

A smoothly swinging 1940 number that adapts the song of the same name from As You Like It, V.iii.:It was a Louer, and his lasse,With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,In the spring time, the onely pretty rang time.For loue is crowned with the prime.In spring time, &c.In spring time, &c.
