Day Break

Writer(s): Harold Adamson / Ferde Grofe (who wrote Bolero)
Based on: the “Mardi Gras” theme of Grofe’s 1926 concert suite,”Mississippi Suite”;
sung by Kathryn Grayson in the 1943 film “Thousands Cheer”

Daybreak, another new day,
The mist on the meadow is drifting away,
‘Cause it’s daybreak, the sun’s in the sky now,
And flowers break through their blanket of dew,
Sunrise, how lovely it seems,
To see from my window a sky full of dreams,
As the white clouds sail on through the blue,
At daybreak I daydream of you.

Sunrise, how lovely it seems,
To see from my window a sky full of dreams,
As the white clouds sail on through the blue,
At daybreak I daydream of you.
