About I Hear a Symphony

"I Hear a Symphony" is a 1965 song recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song became their sixth number-one pop hit on Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart in the United States for two weeks from November 14, 1965 through November 27, 1965. On the UK pop chart, the single peaked at number thirty-nine. The background string arrangement can be attributed to the great arranger Belford Hendricks who also wrote arrangements for hit songs recorded by Mary Wells, Teddy Pendergrass, James Brown, The Four Tops, Jackie Wilson and many other stars.

You've given me a true love and ev'ry day I thank you love,
For a feeling that's so new, so inviting, so exciting.
Whenever you are near, I Hear A Symphony, 
A tender melody pulling me closer, closer to your arms.
Then suddenly, oo, your lips are touching mine.
A feeling so divine 'til I leave the past behind.
I'm lost in a world made for you and me.
Oo love me.  
Whenever you are near I Hear A Symphony play sweet and tenderly
Ev'ry time your lips meet mine my baby.
Baby, baby, I feel a joy within, 
Don't let this feeling end, 
Let it go on and on and on now baby.
 
Baby, baby, those tears that fill my eyes, 
I care not for myself but for those 
Who've never felt the joy we've felt.
Whenever you are near,
I Hear A Symphony each time you speak to me 
I hear a tender rhapsody of love, love.
Baby, baby, as you stand up holding me 
Whispering how much you care,
A thousand violins fill the air now.
Baby, baby, don't let this moment end,
Keep standing close to me,
Oo so close to me, baby, baby.
 
Baby, baby, I Hear A Symphony, a tender melody.
Ah it goes on and on and on and on and 
on and on and on and on and 
on and on and on and on and
