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.

      • I’ve wondered about the “dove rest/nest” part of the song. It always sounded to me as…”like a dull rest [down on the farm]..” (At least that’s what I’ve picked up from Gogi Grant’s recording on THE HELEN MORGAN STORY soundtrack album.) Thanks for clearing that up.

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

  4. I believe everything posted was very logical.

    But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer
    post title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t
    solid, however suppose you added a title that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean Love Nest | George Burns and Gracie
    Allen is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s
    front page and see how they create news titles to grab people interested.

    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
