Song lyrics to Sleepy Serenade (1941). Music by Lou Singer, Lyrics by Mort Greene. Played by Ted Lewis and His Orchestra and sung by The Andrews Sisters in Hold That Ghost.
When stars appear, I seem to hear a serenade
I watch the moon, and then my tune is softly played
The music thrills and gently fills my heart with bliss
I hear the theme and want to dream and reminisce
I close my eyes ‘neath the blanket of indigo skies
And my serenade sighs like a breeze from Heaven above
Even at dawn, when the stars and the moonlight have gone
My refrain lingers on, like a memory of love.
The love has flown, and I’m always alone
I’m not afraid …
I’ll always keep my dreamy, my sleepy serenade.
I like to dream, a sleepy serenade and dream my life away
To a dreamy sleepy serenade
