About Where Or When
“Where or When”, by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, was written for the 1937 musical Babes in Arms. Benny Goodman recorded “Where or When” in 1941 with a very young Peggy Lee. It is a favorite song of many vocalists and has had many fine recordings.

Lyrics

It seems we stood and talked like this, before
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can’t remember where or when

The clothes you’re wearing are the close, you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then
But I can’t remember where or when

Some things that happened for the first time
Seem to be happening again

And so it seems that we have met before
And that we laughed before, also loved before
But who knows where or when
