NIGHT OVER SHANGHAI from "The Singing Marine" 1937 film Harry Warren (m) Johnny Mercer (l) 1937 as recorded by Artie Shaw & his Orchestra (vocal - Helen Forrest) November 29th 1938 also recorded by Lennie Hayton & his Orchestra (vocal - Paul Barry) '37 Night over Shanghai, moon on the rise, Pale yellow faces with sad old eyes. Night over Shanghai, lips painted red Smile from the window, just overhead. Oh, where are the dreams gone up in smoke? Where are the dream birds who never awoke? They're gone like the driftwood, gone out of sight, In the darkness, over Shanghai, in the night. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2013)
