The Old Master Painter Lyrics

 

The Old Master Painter - Peggy Lee (佩吉·李)/Mel Tormé/The Mellomen

That old master painter from the faraway hills

Painted the violets and the daffodills

He put the purple in the twilight haze

Then did a rainbow for the rainy days

Dreamed up the murals on the blue summer skies

Painted the devil in my darlin's eyes

Captured the dreamer with a thousand thrills

The old master painter from the faraway hills

Then came his masterpiece and when he was through

He smiled down from heaven and he gave me you

What a beautiful job on that wonderful day

That old master painter from the hills far away

 

Dreamed up the murals on the blue summer skies

Painted the devil in my darlin's eyes

Captured the dreamer with a thousand thrills

The old master painter from the faraway hills

 

The old master painter from the faraway hills

Painted the violets and the daffodills

He put the purple in the twilight haze

Then did a rainbow for the rainy days

Dreamed up the murals on the blue summer skies

Painted the devil in my darlin's eyes

Captured the dreamer with a thousand thrills

The old master painter from the faraway hills

Then came his masterpiece and when he was through

He smiled down from heaven and he gave me you

What a beautiful job on that wonderful day

That old master painter from the hills far away

 

Far away far away
