The Breeze And I by Sonny Clark

The breeze and I are saying with a sigh
That you no longer care;
The breeze and I are whispering goodbye
To dreams we used to share.

Ours was a love song
That seemed constant as the moon,
Ending in a strange, mournful tune;

And all about me,
They know you have departed without me
And we wonder why,
The breeze and I
The breeze andI

The original tune, "Andaluza," was part of the

1929 (?) "Andalucia Suite" by Cuban composer Lecuona.
Stillman wrote the lyrics later. Composer and Lyricist
met only once. Stillman said: "Lecuona didn't speak
English and I didn't speak Spanish. We had a very
short conversation."

Words: Al Stillman
Music: Ernesto Lecuona
