Nat King Cole - Sweet Lorraine Lyrics

Just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy, baby boy
With another brand new choo-choo choy
When I met my sweet Lorraine, Lorraine, Lorraine.

A pair of eyes
That are brighter than the summer sky
When you see them, you'll realize
Why I love my sweet Lorraine.

Now when it's rainin',
I don't miss the sun
Because it's in my baby's smile, whoa ho
And to think that I'm the lucky one
That will lead her down the aisle, whoa ho ho

Each night I pray
That no one will steal her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry sweet Lorraine.

Now when it's rainin'
I don't miss the sun
Because it's in my baby's smile, whoa ho
And to think that I'm the lucky one
That will lead her down the aisle, whoa ho ho

Each night I pray
That no one will steal her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry sweet Lorraine.

  16. Jim Thompson

    Seriously folks, could it ever get any finer than this, sublime melody, sublime lyrics, sublime singer and sublime accompaniment?

  17. afp seb

    Used to drive from evian to montreux listening to that great song

  18. Jay Young

    All singers have some appeal to me. But there is a certain quality to Cole's voice and style that's most compelling. I started enjoying Cole when he was still with his trio in the early 40's. There's nothing in his repertoire that I do not enjoy.


    My thoughts exactly ! A great singer, a great jazz piano player and above all, a great man and father. It's sad we lose the great ones early.

  19. Jimmy Talbot

    Family Ties brought me here.

  20. Star buono

    COOOOOL !!!

    'Sweet Lorraine' is a song from All Girls Go To Heaven. It is sung by Soul Evans who finally performs in a talent show with the help of Roxanne and Akira.

  24. Lori Lenzer

    My dad sang this to me when I was a toddler....he would only change one word...from 'marry sweet Lorraine' to 'carry sweet Lorraine' -- because he would carry me around the house to get me to fall asleep. RIP Nat King Cole and dad...

    Pierce Ryan

    Beautiful memory to have.Oui.

    I grew up listening to Nat Cole (Mum & Dads favourite) and I’ve always shared their love of his particular jazz style. Still makes me think of my childhood.

    A client paid me 100 bucks to learn this song in Pittsburgh Pa. 1988 because Nat King Cole sung for for the troops this gent was with in WWII in the Pacific, Nat King Cole has been my mentor as a singer and pianist.

    Simply the best. I love this version, his voice, personality, poise, piano style, ensemble. He had it all.

  33. red head

    I played this for my grandma Lorraine at her nursing home because a long time ago she was a bar tender and her boss would play this for her on the piano every time she would serve people drinks😌

    +Chuck Flowers My mom loved this song too and all Nat's music. She played his music all the time, so I too became a fan! I Love his smooth velvet voice....RIP Nat King Cole; March 17, 1919-February 15, 1965.

  48. Sylvain Charles

    Best jazz intro as far as I'm concerned.

    Linden Arden

    even if for chronological reasons it's absurd, it sounds like he's quoting  Stolen moments. I wonder if there's the possibility that Oliver Nelson was inspired by this introduction.

  49. kyle smith

  55. Lorraine Barnett

    My mom and dad named me after this song so I feel truly blessed because they spelled my name exactly as it is in the song. I thank God for Nat King Cole a great singer and my great parents.

  56. Lin I-ming

    o what a wonderful singer

  57. Joey Bagadonuts

    Nice song, thanks.

  58. metempsuchosis

    Thanks for this rendition of Sweet Lorraine with Nat King Cole doing the singing. There is at least one other version of that tune available on YouTube in which he does the singing. You have provided the best of the two I think. My attention was called to Nat King Cole singing Sweet Lorraine while I was reading a Japanese novel; that book is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. YouTube offers a 1946 recording [Metronome All Stars] of the tune with Frank Sinatra singing and Nat King Cole playing piano.

  59. creativecompanion

    Fantastic sound quality. Really does the man justice! Thank you!!!!

  60. boomerang905

    My Chi-town hero. I was in Grade School when he passed and it still seems strange. Something wonderful though....years later I graduated from his same High School and he was also a resident of my community and was the Classmate of John H. Johnson, Founder and Published of Ebony/Jet. I loved Mr. Cole, especially when he had a 15 minute (would you believe 15 minutes) show on Television. All the family would gather around the TV. What a man. :)

    Thank you for sharing, Great track.
