Melody Lingers On, The (see Song Is Ended)

Writer(s): Irving Berlin

The song is ended, but the melody lingers on,
You and the song are gone, but the melody lingers on.
The night was splendid and the melody seems to say
Summer will pass away, take your happiness while you may.
There ‘neath the light of the moon we sang a love song that ended too soon,
The moon descended and I found with the break of dawn,
You and the song are gone, but the melody lingers on.
