Lee, Peggy - I'll Be Seeing You Lyrics

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through

In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut trees, the wishin' well

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In every thing that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

Lee, Peggy I'll Be Seeing You Comments
  1. frankster

    Had a very nice dream with Peggy when I was just barely old enough to write .... Woke up and at breakfast kept writing her name over and over again on a piece of paper: Peggy Lee Peggy Lee Peggy Lee ... still remember that over some sixty-five years later !

  11. Dennis Hartnett

    Peggy Lee is a master on the level of Billie Holliday or Ella. She is so subtle, like here, and the effect is DEVASTATING.

    I don't like piano music, but the lyrics and her voice make me want to cry! Beautiful!

  21. Amer Albadry

    The most beautiful rendition of this song, you can feel her pain today after her departure years ago. Billie sang it well but with less emotions.

    Especially for the mothers whose sons left on a troop train or ship, and now are only a marker in a far away cemetery with the name "unknown" etched on it.

    After dad passed, mom would play this. While he was away in WWII their song was Stardust by Nat King Cole. They don't make music like these anymore.

  25. Bucky Brown

    Never knew she was a slut.

  26. Ri hina

    This is so fine! The very best version.

  27. Karmen Jazbec


  28. Katy

    She is a classy singer not like the ones today. Great song as well

  31. nmuphelps1

    Good beyond words!!!

  32. Dave Witter

    That's a tear jerker if I ever heard one. Amazing.

    Godfrey Gilmour

    It takes me to my childhood and my mother who always sang to me.

  33. M.J. Leger

    This beautiful, terribly profound song was written before WWII, but it became so poignant with that era! So many young men left their loves to go off to war, and, very sadly, many did not come back to renew that love; many women really suffered for that too. All Wars break someone's heart, no matter if they're world wars or just in some far-off country. Loss from War is terrible but this song helped a lot of people keep hoping! Peggy Lee has been one of my favorite vocalists for a very long time.

  34. Hannah Lawrence Leconte

    Playing this at my grandads funeral next week god I miss him 😢♥️

  35. Edouard Millan

    This song reminds me of the great sacrifice our troops made during WWII.

    Arranged by the talented Artie Butler, musicians include members of the Wrecking Crew.

    Kevin Murray

    Awesome, Wrecking Crew recorded with Glenn Campbell's last sad song pertaining to alzheimer's, titled I'm Not Gonna Miss You. Beautiful song.

  38. Charles Barry

    One of the great voices of the past.

  39. Ray Warner

    Mothers in her grave and Granma tooo.....


    I dunno man... I got here from Duke’s “Haupe”, and I’m young. I’ve loved, sure, but I’ve never had that in person thing. Call it chance, or a nance from the way I am, but I think I just need to grow up a little bit moreso then. Well... here’s the money to the early 20’s.

    If you’re looking for love, then good luck

  41. paul catch

    We remember Vera Lynn singing this song.

  42. Pablo Bañadps

    There was also a romantic movie named after this beautiful song. Starring Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotten and Shirley Temple.

  43. Pablo Bañadps

    Although beautifully sang by Miss Lee, I also recommend Vera Lynn's and Jo Stafford's renditions.

    Pablo Bañadps

    There was also a romantic movie named after this song. Starring Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotten and Shirley Temple.

  44. Gary Pecoraro

    Id love to believe? With all the events, in the past, we find ourselves in the rolls of those we fight ? Things I've seen make me depressed with all these plans.
    And seeing is now believing? I'm a strong man of faith, but others are not!
    Gods plans are dismissed and I feel this pain.
    Seeing and being apart of you is very important to me in the way god revealed it. Not just going along for the monetary price of slaves.
    See you ? How many time do we pass this cup that holds nothing but empty promises? I want and I hope you want, our cup running over with love and joy, not other desiding our life and how it will be lived. Ti Amo Mi Moni, with all my heart, forever.
    It means so much more our way? 💖💍💖...

  45. JON D. ELDER

    Timeless, she had it all and I mean all. Her music touched us in a very special way. Peggy Lee was one of the best vocalists to ever grace the planet.

  47. Jani Liebenberg

    Beautiful old world war song. Reminds me of my late mom and dad. My dad was in the navy. Miss them só much😍😍😍

  48. William Henry

    Wonderful Peggy sings this number in a sultry sexy way.

  49. yolanda ferrer canessa

    Es una hermosa canción que nunca dejare de escuchar es bellisima

  50. Linda Cardoso

    Patricia - sorry for your loss. It is a very sad song. My mom's first husband died in WW2 after only 3 months of marriage. It was so sad. This is what war does. Your mom was very fortunate to have gotten your dad back and spend so many years with him.

  51. Kevin Murray

    What class and beauty.

  52. Jill

    Let's listen...together, eh ?

  53. Jill

    And...and...somewhere in the '69...'70....Peggy sang, " Is that all there is...?" I took the plunge into womanhood....

    Now approaching the sunset of my life, remembering all the loves thar came and gone. To think, I am always to be blamed for the seperation. Loneliness is my apt punishment.

    Peggy took me some pretty tough times. I'll remember her always.

  67. Rigil Kent

    Singer, Songwriter and Actress. Best remembered for songs "Fever," "Lover," "Big Spender," and a host of other songs. Born Norma Dolores Egstrom, her mother died when she was 4, and her father, a railroad station agent, remarried, but later abandoned the new family, leaving Peggy with her stepmother, who physically abused her. Peggy would develop her singing as a means of escape, and at age 14, she began singing at local PTA meetings for 50 cents a night. While singing as a teenager on a local radio station in Fargo, the program director suggested she change her name to Peggy Lee. Her big break came when Benny Goodman hired her to sing with his orchestra after hearing her perform. She quickly shot to stardom with the song, "Why Don't You Do Right?" and she went on to record such songs as "Fever," "Lover", "Golden Earrings" and "Is that all there is?" Much of her singing was with Big Bands, and her 1989 album, "Peggy Sings the Blues" was nominated for a Grammy. A prolific songwriter, she wrote for such great musicians as Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, and Quincy Jones. In 1990, she won the Pied Piper Award, from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. Trying her hand at acting in the late 1940s with "Midnight Serenade" (1947), she won an Academy Award nomination for her role as the hard-drinking singer, Rose, in "Pete Kelly's Blues" (1955). She also voiced the vocals for four characters in the Disney film "Lady and the Tramp" (1955), including: Darling, Peg, and the two Siamese Cats, Si and Am, but these were virtually her last movies. Thirty-six years later, she won $2.3 million from Disney over royalties from the Videocassette sales of the movie, as her contract with Disney had barred the sale of movie "transcriptions" without her consent. Her later years were marked with lawsuits and medical ailments. In 1976, she had a near-fatal fall, a second serious fall in 1987, and in early 1985, underwent four angioplasties (surgery in which a balloon is used to open clogged arteries in her heart), and later double-bypass heart surgery. Confined to a wheelchair in the late-1980s, by the 1990s, she was suffering from diabetes and another stroke. She was married four times, each time ending in divorce, and had one child, a daughter, Nicki, with her first husband, guitarist David Barbour. She died in 2002 of a heart attack. She was inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1992. She has a rose, "the Peggy Lee," named for her; it is pink with a touch of peach color.


    No one ever sang it better ! Happy Mother's day MOM RIP love NAT

    Beautiful song, miss U Peggy Lee, what a great voice. Makes me thing of my Brother Jack when he was in the Korean War

  71. Patricia Bilinkas

    My died died two weeks ago and this was my mom and dad’s song. He was a Navy vet from WWII. God bless him and my mom who survives him at 92.

    M.J. Leger

    It is so difficult to lose a parent, but we all do, except in rare cases, children are supposed to outlive parents but I think it's especially hard for a girl to lose her father, that is such a special relationship, I know I lost my father many years ago, but I still miss him and see him in my memory all the time.

    susan hess

    Patricia, Don't doubt it. They are still seeing each other.

    susan hess

    I've been married 37 years...............I can't imagine not knowing that I will wake up to his face tomorrow.

    Johnny McDaniel

    My Dad was also a Navy Vet in the Pacific theater. His brother, my namesake, perished when the Indianapolis was sunk just before the war's end after delivering the components or the Bomb. This was my Dad's song as well. He even recorded it himself and sent it back during the war!

  73. Clara

    By far the best version of this song!

    Sophia Monet

    Clara Monteiro I disagree. No one can touch Billie Holiday in my opinion. She has so much depth and pain.

    Jessi Brunson

    Clara Monteiro...I agree

  74. kmgirl1967

    Her voice truly pervades my Soul!!! She is marvelous!!!!!💟

  75. Rigil Kent

    I'll be seeing you
    In all the old familiar places
    That this heart of mine embraces
    All day through
    In that small cafe
    The park across the way
    The children's carousel
    The chestnut trees
    The wishing well
    I'll be seeing you
    In every lovely summer's day
    In everything that's light and gay
    I'll always think of you that way
    I'll find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    I'll be looking at the moon
    But I'll be seeing you
    I'll be seeing you
    In every lovely summer's day
    In everything that's light and gay
    I'll always think of you that way
    I'll find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    I'll be looking at the moon
    But I'll be seeing you

  76. city zen

    "I'll Be Seeing You" is a popular song about nostalgia, with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal.[1] Published in 1938, it was inserted into the Broadway musical Right This Way, which closed after fifteen performances.[2]

    The resemblance between the main tune's first four lines and a passage within the theme of the last movement of Gustav Mahler's Third Symphony (1896) was pointed out by Deryck Cooke in 1970.[3] Billie Holiday's 1944 recording of the song was the final bit of data sent by NASA to the Opportunity rover on Mars when its mission ended on 13 February 2019.[4]

  90. sheridanguy

    Don't forget Vera Lynn's version.

  91. Larry Ingle

    Found Peggy Lee in 1958 while working for WPTF Radio in Raleigh and for Sixty Years now She continues to rank #1 among all of the many vocalists I've known.
    Finally in the mid 80's She had a two week engagement in Orlando with Walt Disney World. and on three separate events I was in her audience. It was there that she walked in like an angel and in what appeared to be no effort whatsoever, belted out fourteen of her top hits in a row. On my last visit, accompanying me were six family members all seated there in Disney;s Top of the World Dinner Theater. Unbelievabily, our booth was located on the performance floor, only approximately twelve feet from where she sang. After her concert She politely strolled over, extended her hand for me to kiss and then threw a smooch to my eight year old daughter and patter her on the head, stating "Oh I Love You"..

    Surely if Miss Lee's not up in Heaven . . . Then I don't wanna go there !

    Raymond-Trevor Twine M.A.

    Great story Larry She is great great a favorite of mine growing up
