About All My Tomorrows
This song was written for the 1959 film A Hole In The Head by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. This film, directed by Frank Capra, starred Frank Sinatra, Edward G. Robinson and Eleanor Parker. Cahn and Van Heusen won the Academy Award for Best Music and for Best Song, though the song that won was “High Hopes” and not “All My Tomorrows.”

Lyrics

Today I may not have a thing at all
Except for just a dream or two
But I’ve got lots of plans for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

Right now it may not seem like spring at all
We are drifting and the laughs are few
But I’ve got rainbows planned for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

No one knows better than I
That luck keeps passing me by … that’s fate
But with you there at my side
I’ll soon be turning the tide … just wait

As long as I’ve got arms that cling at all
Its you that I’ll be clinging to
And all the dreams I dream, beg, or borrow
On some bright tomorrow they’ll all come true

And all my bright tomorrows belong to you
