Stardust

    (Mitchell Parish - Hoagy Carmichael)

Transcribed from Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, recorded October 12, 1931.
From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra 1931-1932; The Chronogical Classics 526.
 
Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song;
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you.
That was long ago,
When each kiss was an inspiration;
Now you were in my arms,
And my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song,
Beside a garden wall,
When the stars are bright
You are in my arms;
The little nightengale sings his fairytale
Of paradise where roses grew,
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody,
The memory of love's refrain.
When I'm all alone
And thought I was with you,
I get so lonesome, honey, just for you,
I love to hear you sing that song.
