"A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" is a romantic British popular song written in 1939 with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz and music by Manning Sherwin.
Berkeley Square is a large leafy square in Mayfair, an expensive part of London. The Ritz Hotel referred to is also in Mayfair.〔The point about the nightingale singing in Berkeley Square (pronounced 'Bar-klee') is that it did not exist. The song is about the magic of the meeting of two lovers. This can be seen in the lyrics. See following footnote.〕〔
''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 turn'd and smiled at me''
''A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square.''〕
