Only Forever
ONLY FOREVER

Bing Crosby

(Monaco, Burke)

- The movie Rhythm on the River provided Bing his third No. 1 hit of 1940.

Johnny Burke got the idea for "Only Forever" from an expression he heard

Bing use. Bing recorded the song July 3 with John Scott Trotter's

Orchestra, and by fall it had shot to the top of the Billboard charts,

where it stayed for a whopping 9 weeks! All together, "Only Forever" spent

20 weeks on the Billboard charts.



Do I want to be with you

As the years come and go?

Only forever

If you care to know.

Would I grant all your wishes

And be proud of the task

Only forever

If someone should ask.

How long would it take me

To be near if you bechon?

Off hand I would figure

Less than a second.

Do you think I'll remember

How you looked when you smile?

Only forever

That's puttin' it mild.
