-artist: nat king cole

-peak billboard position # 12 in 1963

-words and music by george david weiss and joe sherman

(if I had to choose just one day)

If I had to choose just one day

To last my whole life through

It would surely be that sunday

The day that I met you

Newborn whippoorwills were calling from the hills

Summer was a-coming in but fast

Lots of daffodils were showing off their skills

Nodding all together, I could almost hear them whisper

“go on, kiss her, go on and kiss her”

If I had to choose one moment

To live within my heart

It would be that tender moment

Recalling how we started

Darling, it would be when you smiled at me

That way, that sunday, that summer

(newborn whippoorwills were calling from the hills)

(summer was a-comin’ in but fast)

(lots of daffodils were showin’ off their skills)

(nodding all together, I could almost hear them whisper)

(“go on, kiss her, go on and kiss her”)

If I had to choose one moment

To live within my heart

It would be that tender moment

Recalling how we started

Darling, it would be when you smiled at me

That way, that sunday, that summer
