Bei Mir Bist Du Sch​ö​n - Single

by Deanne Matley



Barbette Records is excited to announce its first release of 2022. Deanne Matley's Upcoming Newest Single, "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön" (To Me You're Beautiful) is a popular Yiddish song from 1932 written by Jacob Jacobs (lyricist) and Sholom Secunda (composer)

Initially written for a Yiddish language comedy musical, I Would If I Could (Men Ken Lebn Nor Men Lost Nisht) the song became a worldwide hit in 1937 when recorded by The Andrews Sisters with English lyrics written by Sammy Cahn and Saul Chaplin. Since then, the song has been covered by Great Artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Rudy Vallée, Tommy Dorsey, June Christy and many more.


Of all the boys I've known, and I've known some
Until I first met you, I was lonesome
And then you came in sight, and my heart grew light
And this whole world seemed new to me

You're really swell, I have to admit you
Deserve expressions that really fit you
And so I've racked my brain, trying to explain
All the things you do to me

Bei mir bist du schön, again I’ll explain
Bei mir bist du schön means you're grand
Bei mir bist du schön, again I'll explain
It means you're the fairest in the land

I could say bella, bella, even say wunderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are
I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du schön
So kiss me and say you understand


released January 7, 2022
Deanne's original arrangement was recorded off the floor at The King Eddy in Calgary, AB by Dave Horrocks with Jon Day on piano, Jeremy Coates on upright bass, Tyler Hornby on drums, and Cedric Blary on clarinet.
