Name these Tunes

In the roaring traffic's boom,
in the silence of my lonely room,
I think of you.

You're a Boticcelli,
You're Keats,
You're Shelly!
You're Ovaltine!

Oh, I feel that I could melt ;
Into Heaven I'm hurled !
I know how Columbus felt,
Finding another world.

They told Marconi
Wireless was a phony
It's the same old cry

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When youre in love, my how they fly

When the things youve planned
Need a helping hand,
I will understand ...
