IRVING BERLIN lyrics - In The Shade Of A Sheltering Tree

IRVING BERLIN
"In The Shade Of A Sheltering Tree"

[Verse:]
Here and there a loving pair will go and share
A Morris chair to spoon
Jack and Jill preferred a hill and there's a thrill
Beneath the silv'ry moon
But there's only one place
For a lover's embrace

[Refrain:]
In the shade of a sheltering tree
That's the place for a couple to be

You will find that they always agree
In the shade of a sheltering tree

All the tales Adam whispered to Eve
Mother Eve simply had to believe

What was hers was his
The reason is they happen to be
In the shade of a sheltering tree
