What a Diff'rence a Day Makes

Was it a sign of hope or wry irony?

Reporters in the State House were mystified this morning when House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) wandered down the basement hall singing "What a Diff'rence A Day Makes," a classic popularized by Dinah Washington in 1959.

Could the votes have materialized overnight for slots legislation, bringing a three-week special session closer to concluding? Or was the House of Delegates in for another agonizing day, trying to resolve an issue that the body seemed incapable of resolving 24 hours earlier?

Perhaps there are some clues in the lyrics, which we found here.

What a diff'rence a day makes
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a diff'rence a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you
Find romance on your menu
What a diff'rence a day makes
And the difference is you

What a diff'rence a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you
Find romance on your menu
What a diff'rence a day makes
And the difference is you.
