About Wondrous Place

"Wondrous Place" is a song written by Jeff Lewis and Bill Giant. It was recorded by Billy Fury who cut several versions of the song during his career. His original release of "Wondrous Place" reached No. 25 on the UK Singles Chart in late 1960. The song gained further recognition forty years later when Fury's version was used on a UK television advertisement for the Toyota Yaris. The original version of "Wondrous Place" was released in the US by Jimmy Jones, but the single failed to chart. The song was covered in 2008 by Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner and the Rascals' Miles Kane for their project, the Last Shadow Puppets. It was released as B-side of the group's first single, "The Age of the Understatement". Australian singer Jason Donovan also recorded the song for his album Let It Be Me (2008). Marshall Crenshaw had earlier recorded a version for his 1996 album, Miracle of Science, variously titled "A Wonderous Place". A cover of the song, sung by British performer Alice Gold, was also used in an advert for beer brand Carling in September 2011.

I found a place full of charms
A magic world in my baby's arms
Her soft embrace like satin and lace 
Wondrous place

What a spot in a storm
To cuddle up and stay nice and warm
Away from harm in my baby's arms 
Wondrous place

Man I'm nowhere
When I'm anywhere else
But I don't care
Everything's right when she holds me tight

Her tender hands on my face
I'm in heaven in her embrace
I want to stay and never go away 
Wondrous place

Man I'm nowhere
When I'm anywhere else
But I don't care
Everything's right when she holds me tight

Her tender hands on my face
I'm in heaven in her embrace
I want to stay and never go away 
Wondrous place
