About My Love Went To London
Composer Tony Scibetta was a personal friend of Blossom Dearie, so it’s only natural that he would write this song for her. She recorded this song in 1991 on the album Tweedledum and Tweedledee with Mike Renzi, Tony Bennett’s musical director as of 2014.

Lyrics

Thank the Lord I am here at last
Now I found London Town
Never thought I’d live to see
The city on the Thames

Where’s that sky of grey
Where’s that foggy day
The gust winds had their say
But now I’m here to tell you

My love went to London
And left me behind
I’m going to London
And I’ll find her

Piccadilly Circus
Come meet her
Or I’ll rush right up to her
And lovingly I’ll greet her

My love went to London
I’m missing her so
I’m going to London
Where my love is

Tomorrow I’ll roam around
Old fabulous London Town
I’ll search every face I see around me
Until I hold London in my arms

Tomorrow I’ll roam around
Old fabulous London Town
I’ll search every face I see around me
Until I hold London in my arms
