Commentary

Nature Boy was a song by Eden Ahbez published in 1947 before becoming a major hit for Nat King Cole in 1948.

 

Lyrics

There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy
They say he’d wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy, and sad of eye; but very wise was he

And then one day… none magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

[Eden Ahbez]
