The Twelfth of Never
1957 Jerry Livingston, Paul Francis Webster
A hit for Johnny Mathis in 1957.

Recording sessions
1963 April 12: New York Carnegie Hall
You ask how much I love you
I'll tell you true
Until the twelfth of never I'll still be loving you

Hold me close never let me go
Hold me close love my heart like April snow

I'll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom
And baby I'll love you till the roses
Have lost their perfume

I'll love you till the poets run out of rhyme
Until the twelfth of never
And that's a long long time
