LYRICS

"The minute you put a song over the titles or in any part of the picture, you're unconsciously trying to play on the viewer's pocketbook - you're trying to get him to listen, to go out and buy."
--   Henry Mancini

For most of his scores for motion pictures, Henry Mancini wrote at least a song for them, with the lyrics by well-known songwriters like Johnny Mercer, Hal David, Livingston & Evans and many more. 
Here I will present the lyrics I could find, but I am looking for them everywhere so check it from time to time. I might even try to transcribe some of them myself ...
