I have the mem'ry of a lovely refrain And in my heart it will forever remain Our song was like a blue white gem My darling, do you remember? That night in Manhattan was the start of it We lived it and we loved every part of it The glow of moonlight in the park The lights that spell your name The autumn breeze that fanned the spark That set our hearts aflame Our kiss was a sky-ride to the highest star We made it without touching the handlebars And I gave you my love To the melody of the music, the madness That made our Manhattan serenade Manhattan serenade TRIVIA: The music for this song was written by Louis Alter in 1928. It was used as the theme tune for the 1930-1945 radio comedy 'Easy Aces' as an instrumental, and similarly for the film "My Man Godfrey" (1936). The lyric by Harold Adamson was not added until 1942.
