Over the Banister leans a face [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to Over the Bannister (1944) Written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, Sung by Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. Louis

John: [spoken] Over the banister leans a face. Tenderly… sweet…

Esther: [sung] And… and… beguiling

While below her with tender grace
He watches the picture smiling
A light burns dim in the hall below
Nobody sees them standing

Saying good night again,
Soft and low
Halfway up to the landing
Nobody, only those eyes of brown

Tender and full of meaning
Gaze on the…
Loveliest face in town
Over the banister leaning
