Love Nest

April 6, 2009

The theme song of the Burns and Allen show stayed the same throughout the radio and television runs.  Not too many people know that the instrumental theme actually had lyrics.

Just a love nest, cozy and warm,
Like a dove rest down on a farm,
A veranda with some sort of clinging vine,
Then a kitchen where some rambler roses twine,
Then a small room, dream room for two,
Better than a palace with a gilded dome,
Is a love nest you can call home.

Now the next time you watch the show, you are just going to have to sing along!

  1. Great song

  2. Good song! The lyrics in the second line of the refrain should be: Like a dove nest (not dove rest). Thanks for the post!

    • When I listen to it again, it sounds like “dove rest” after all.

  3. The lyrics are sung in the opening to the Marilyn Monroe film LOVE NEST
