Hyde-ing in Mayfair

That certain night
The night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

I may be right
I may be wrong
But I’m perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

The moon that lingered over London town
Poor puzzled moon
He wore a frown
How could he know we two were so in love
The whole wide world seemed upside down

The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And as we kissed and said goodbye
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

The best version I’ve heard of this song was performed by a little group known as The Manhattan Transfer.  Here’s the classic lineup, of the late Tim Hauser, Janis Siegel, Cheryl Bentyne and Alan Paul.
