Recorded just a month before the War and shortly after the release of the Irene Dunne-Charles Boyer picture "Love Affair", for which Buddy DeSylva provided both music and lyrics.

Vera's joined here by Ambrose and his reliably superb orchestra--Novachord soloist isn't identified.

WISHING (WILL MAKE IT SO)

Wishing will make it so
just keep on wishing and care will go
Dreamers tell us dreams come true
It's no mistake
Wishes are the dreams we dream when we're awake
The curtain of night will part
If you are certain within your heart
So if you wish long enough wish strong enough
You will come to know
Wishing will make it so

Just imagine that you are
Back in childhood's day
Wishing on the evening star
For a load of hay
It worked wonders for you then
Who knows why or how
Though you're older try again
It can help you now

Wishing will make it so
just keep on wishing and care will go
Dreamers tell us dreams come true
It's no mistake
Wishes are the dreams we dream when we're awake
The curtain of night will part
If you are certain within your heart
So if you wish long enough wish strong enough
You will come to know
Wishing will make it so.

More on the Novachord, from Wiki:

The Novachord was an early polyphonic synthesizer manufactured by Hammond from 1939 to 1942. Like its contemporaries, the Theremin, the Ondes Martenot and the Trautonium, it can be heard occasionally in horror and science fiction film scores, including many genre films from Universal Studios and James Bernard's ethereal music for Hammer's The Gorgon (1964). The Novachord had an early implementation of ADSR, with attack/decay/sustain on switches and the release controlled via a pedal.
