A Foggy Day

I was a stranger in the city
Out of town were the people I knew
I had that feeling of self-pity
What to do, what to do, what to do
The outlook was decidedly blue

But as I walked through the foggy streets alone
It turned out to be the luckiest day I’ve known

A foggy day, in london town
Had me low, had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm
British museum, had lost it’s charm

How long I wondered,
Could this thing last
But the age of miracles, hadn’t past
For suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy london town,
The sun was shining everywhere

For suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy london town,
The sun was shining everywhere

Everywhere
Everywhere
Everywhere

Ella Fitzgerald

 

 

I am not sure,  original poet may be Gershwin …

  6. Wonderful photograph nice contrast between the foggy sky and the foreground with the bright colors on the train the angle sets an interesting composition.
    The song lyrics are very apropos.
    Gershwins’ wrote the music for “A Damsel in Distress” and there were some wonderful songs that have endured very well indeed. There was “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “A Foggy Day.” Ella Frizgerald only sang the sung but I am not sure if she was in the movie.
