It's not that you're fairer
Than a lot of girls just as pleasin'
That I doff my hat
As a worshipper at your shrine
It's not that you're rarer
Than asparagus out of season
No, my darling, this is the reason
Why you've got to be mine
You'd be so nice to come to
You'd be so nice by the fire
While the breeze on high, sang a lullaby
You'd be all that I could desire
Under stars chilled by the winter
Under an August moon burning above
You'd be so nice
You'd be paradise, to come home to and love
Song & Lyrics Facts
Frank Sinatra's You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To was released in 1945 and featured on the album In the Wee Small Hours. The song was written by Cole Porter, who also wrote “Night and Day” for Frank Sinatra, and was arranged by Nelson Riddle with backing from the Nelson Riddle Orchestra.
Lyrically, the song is a plea from a lonely individual asking their significant other to come home and make them feel better. It expresses how much that person means to them and how they can be a source of comfort. This classic love ballad has been covered by many artists since its release.
