Quotes[edit]

Are you warm? Are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art?
  • Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?
    Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
    Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
    They just lie there, and they die there
    Are you warm? Are you real, Mona Lisa?
    Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art?
    • "Mona Lisa" (1950)
  • City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style
    In the air there's a feeling of Christmas
    Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile
    And on every street corner you hear
    Silver bells, (silver bells), silver bells, (silver bells)
    It's Christmastime in the city
    Ring a ling, (ring a ling), hear them ring, (hear them ring)
    Soon it'll be Christmas Day
