Three Coins in the Fountain

1955 Music by Julie Styne Lyrics by Sammy Cahn
Won Academy Award for best original song in film by same name

Three coins in the fountain
Each one seeking happiness
Thrown by three hopeful lovers
Which one will the fountain bless
Three hearts in the fountain
Each heart longing for its home
There they lie in the fountain
Somewhere in the heart of Rome
