I wish you bluebirds in the spring
To give your heart a song to sing,
And then a kiss, but more than this,
I wish you love.

And in July a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade;
I wish you health, and more than wealth
I wish you love.

My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be,
So with my best — my very best —I set you free.

I wish you shelter from the storm,
a cozy fire to keep you warm,
But most of all, when snowflakes fall,
I wish you love.

Frank Sinatra, 1964
(Words & Music by Charles Trenet)
