On a little street in Singapore, We'd meet beside a lotus-covered door, A veil of moonlight on her lonely face, How pale the hands that held me in embrace. My sails tonight are filled with perfume of Shalimar, And temple bells will guide me to the shore. And then I'll hold her in my arms, and love the way I loved before, On a little street in Singapore. ** Harry James & His Orchestra (vocal: Frank Sinatra) recorded this song in 1939, but it was not a hit for them until 1944, when it was re-issued under Sinatra's name. ***** As recorded by Manhattan Transfer On a little street in Singapore With me - beside a lotus covered door A veil of moonlight on her lovely face How pale the hands that held me in embrace My sails tonight are filled with perfume of Shalimar With temple bells that guide me to her shore And then I hold you in my arms And love the way I loved before On a little street in Singapore On a little street in Singapore With me - beside a lotus covered door A veil of moonlight on her lovely face How pale the hands that held me in embrace *****
