Wait Till You See Her

By Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart 1942

Introduced by Ray Bolger, this was the one hit song from Rodgers & Hart's final hit Broadway musical, By Jupiter. The show was the composing duo's longest running, and the last of an impressive string in the late 1930s and early 1940s. This song was cut early on from the original production, but resurfaced in the 1967 revival.
Lyrics:

Wait till you see her,
See how she looks,
Wait till you hear her laugh.

Painters of paintings,
Writers of books,
Never could tell the half.

Wait till you feel
The warmth of her glance,
Pensive and sweet and wise.

All of it lovely,
All of it thrilling,
I'll never be willing to free her.

When you see her,
You won't believe your eyes,
You won't believe your eyes.
