    The Days of wine and roses laugh and runaway like a child a play,
    through the meadowland toward a closing door,
    a door marked “Nevermore” that wasn’t there before.
    The lonely night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
    of the golden smile that introduced me to the Days of Wine and Roses and you.

    @Geraldolini ridiculous. AW recorded it with a full orchestra. this man sings it with just a piano! Its ridiculous to compare. an orchestra can hide a singers flaws and vulnerabilities. TB had no one to provide cover and he came through in great fashion.

    @KentuckyJet you’re right no comparison. I do love Tony Bennett’s version as well. However, this song is most identified with AW. Actually they both recorded this around 62-63. But, AW version seemed to be most popular as far a record sales. It is also the one I most remember from long ago. Perry Como did a version as well. I agree with you that TB has a great instrument…one of a kind! He’s still goin too…

    Bill Evans’ work on the piano makes the great treatment by Tony Bennet move this version into the marvelous. What a satisfying treat!

    Very nice…beautiful song. Check out Monica Mancini’s version and also the Henry Mancini version w/chorus.

    I had never heard the lyrics of this song before, but at the end, when he finished with “the days of wine and roses …and…” I somehow predicted he was going to say “you”

    Absolutely beautiful. Have Barbra Streisand and him ever made a duet? That would probably be celestial ?
