Lamp Is Low, The

Writer(s): Peter De Rose / Mitchell Parish / Maurice Ravel
Orchestra: Harry James
Adapted from Ravel’s Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte
Transcribed from a Nelson Eddy record

Another perfect day has come to a close,
Twelve o’clock, all is well
And while a sleepy world is lost in repose,
Let my heart softly tell you

Dream beside me in the midnight glow,
The lamp is low.
Dream and watch the shadows come and go,
The lamp is low.
While you linger in my arms,
My lips will sigh I love you so
Dream the sweetest dream we’ll ever know,
Tonight the moon is high,
The lamp is low.
(musical interlude)
Dream the sweetest dream we’ll ever know,
Tonight the moon is high,
The lamp is low.
