The Second Time Around

The Second Time Around is a song with words by Sammy Cahn (1913-1993) and music by Jimmy Van Heusen (1913-1990). It was introduced in the 1960 film High Time, sung by Bing Crosby with Henry Mancini conducting his orchestra, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song (losing to "Never on Sunday"). It was the last song Bing Crosby introduced that would be nominated for an Oscar for Best Song.
Its theme is captured by its first two lines:
Love is lovelier the second time around,
Still wonderful with both feet on the ground.
