Bei Mir Bist du Schön

by The Andrews Sisters

The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 – May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 – October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano P…




Of all the boys I've known, and I've known some
Until I first met you, I was lonesome
And when you came in sight, dear, my heart grew light

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

Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I've tried to explain, bei mir bist do schön
So kiss me and say you understand

Bei mir bist do schön, you've heard it all before
but let me try to explain
Bei mir bist do schön means that you're grand
Bei mir bist do schön, it's such an old refrain
and yet I should explain
It means I am begging for your hand

I could say bella, bella, even sehr wünderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I could say bella, bella, even sehr wünderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I've tried to explain, bei mir bist do schön
So kiss me and say that you will understand
