You Belong to Me

written by Pee Wee King, Chilton Price and Redd Stewart (1952)
from Mona Lisa Smile (soundtrack)

Lyrics

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember, darling, all the while
you belong to me

See the marketplace in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
you belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
maybe you'll be lonesome, too
and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
you belong to me

I'll be so alone and without you
maybe you'll be lonesome too
and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
But remember, darling, 'til you're home again
you belong to me
