This Could Be The Start Of Something Big!

Composed by Steve Allen 1956




Yvette Johansson & the Joe Ruberto Trio are regulars at the Bennetts Lane Jazz Club in Melbourne, so check them out when you have the chance!

Performed by Yvette Johansson & the Joe Ruberto Trio:
Yvette Johansson: vocals

Michael Tortoni: bass
Anthony Baker: drums

You’re walking along the street or you’re at a party,
Or else you’re alone and then you suddenly dig,
You’re looking in someone’s eyes and suddenly realize,
This could be the start of something big,

You’re lunching at Twenty-one and watching your diet,
Declining a Charlotte Russe, accepting a fig,
When out of a clear blue sky, suddenly it’s gal and guy,
This could be the start of something big,

There’s no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend,
Who knows what’s written in the magic book,
But when a lover you discover at the gate my friend,
Invite him in without a second look,

You’re up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi’s,
Or else you’re in Malibu alone on the sand,
Suddenly you hear bells, suddenly you can tell,
This could be the start of something grand,

You’re doing your income tax, or buying a toothbrush,
Or hurrying home because the hour is late,
Suddenly there he is, you got to be where he is,
This could be the start of something great,

You’re having a snowball fight, or picking up daisies,
You’re singing a happy tune and knocking on wood,
Suddenly there you go, the very next thing you know is,
This could be the start of something good,

Your destined lover you discover in a frightening clash,
You must keep your heart awake both night and day,
Because the meeting may be fleeting as a lightning flash,
But you don’t want to let it slip away,

Watching the sun come up, or counting your money,
Or else at a dim café ordering wine,
Suddenly there he is, you got to be where he is,
This could be the start of something,
This could be the start of something,
This could be the start of something big,
This could be the start of something big,

(There are several different versions of the lyrics - I am yet to determine which are the original lyrics, if you can shed any light on this, please send me an email or leave a comment)
