Face Question Mark

 

The answers are below ....

Give yourself one extra point if you were able to identify the song title for these lyrics:

I've grown accustomed to her face.
She almost makes the day begin.
I've grown accustomed to the tune that
She whistles night and noon.
Her smiles, her frowns,
Her ups, her downs
Are second nature to me now;
Like breathing out and breathing in.
I was serenely independent and content before we met;
Surely I could always be that way again-
And yet
I've grown accustomed to her look;
Accustomed to her voice;
Accustomed to her face.

 

From: I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face (Frederick Loewe / Alan Jay Lerner.)
