It Could Happen to You

“This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for,
unexpected--in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire
possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.

- Thomas Mann
(06 June 1875 - 12 Aug 1955)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

"It Could Happen to You" is a popular standard with music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke. The song was written in 1944 and was introduced by Dorothy Lamour in the Paramount musical comedy film, And the Angels Sing.[1]

A recording by Jo Stafford was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 158. It reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on September 21, 1944 at #10, its only week on the chart.[2]

The Dexter Gordon composition, "Fried Bananas," is based on the changes of "It Could Happen to You."

It Could Happen to You

Music by Jimmy Van Heusen (26 Jan 1913 – 06 Feb 1990), 1944

Lyrics by Johnny Burke (03 Oct 1908 - 25 Feb 1964)

Hide your heart from sight, lock your dreams at night
It could happen to you
Don't count stars or you might stumble
Someone drops a sigh and down you tumble

Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me

Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me
