Of Thee I Sing

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the box set Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George and Ira Gershwin Song Book (1959) and on the compilation 'S Marvelous: The Gershwin Songbook (1994).

From the island of manhattan to the coast of gold
From north to south, from east to west
You are the love, I love the best
You're the dreamboat in the sweetest story ever told

A dream I sought, both night and day
For years through all, the u.s.a
The star I hitched my wagon to
Is very obviously you

Of thee I sing, baby
Summer, autumn, winter, spring, baby
You're my silver lining
You're my sky of blue
There's a lovelight shining

Just because of you

Of thee I sing, baby
You have got that certain thing, baby
Shining star and inspiration
Worthy of a mighty nation
Of thee I sing

<Musical interlude>

Of thee I sing, baby
You have got that certain thing, baby
Shining star and inspiration
Worthy of a mighty nation
Of thee I sing
