Nature boy

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty
There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea

A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return"

Alan- I loved listening to him sing. Yes...I am that old.  The message is still true.

It's a very non-exclusive club.

Good evening Alan,

I never tired of hearing Nat King Cole's dreamy voice! His eyes always looked directly into the camera and just sparkled....and then there was his smile!

I'd never seen this video before, and it struck me that he seemed very young, and rather gawky.  Not the way I remember him.

I was wondering who it was until I read the comment from Dorie Dillard Austin TX since I am not much of a musical person, haha.

It makes me incredibly sad that Nat King Cole (yes, Natalie's father) is no longer instantly recognizable.

how about this version

Good morning Alan. Have listened to his music since I was very young and that was some time ago. His popularity continues to this day.

I hadn't heard this tune for a very long time, but came across it accidentally today, and decided to share it.

Nat's voice was like a sound version of honey for the way it flowed so smoothly.
