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, a part of London. The Ritz Hotel referred to is just outside Mayfair, adjacent to Green Park. The nightingale, a migrant songbird, is celebrated in literature and music for the beauty of its song. It favours rural habitats, and is unlikely to be heard in Central London.

And, as we kissed and said 'goodnight', A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square. When dawn came stealing up all gold and blue To interrupt our rendezvous, I still remember how you smiled and said, "Was that a dream or was it true?" Our homeward step was just as light As the tap-dancing feet of Astaire And, like an echo far away, A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square. I know 'cos I was there, That night in Berkeley Square.
