Here's a photograph of you in Woody Hermann?s band
It was 1952, you were such a handsome man
One of you at a memorial with all of Hoagy?s clan
And then you and my mother, walking hand in hand

And she was beautiful and you played the piano
You were beautiful upon the keys
The world was beautiful when the two of you were dancing
Beautiful to me

You took a photograph of us, your ladies liberty
My hair was in the breeze then I played Carnegie
Grandmother read the sonnet of Emma Lazarus
She's only halfway in this picture, you took of all of us
