A sleepy lagoon, a tropical moon And two on an island A sleepy lagoon, and two hearts in tune In some lullaby land The fire flies gleam reflects in the stream, They sparkle and shimmer A star from on high falls out of the sky And slowly grows dimmer. The leaves in the trees all dance in the breeze And float in the ripple We're deep in the spell as nightingales tell Of roses and dew The memory of this moment of love Will haunt me forever A tropical moon, a sleepy lagoon And you (Contributed by - June 2007 ******************* SLEEPY LAGOON as recorded by Richard Tauber with Orchestra conducted by Henry Geehl 1942 A sleepy lagoon, A tropical moon, And two on an island. A sleepy lagoon And two hearts in tune In some lullaby land The fire flies' gleam Reflects in the stream, They sparkle and shimmer; A star from on high Falls out of the sky And slowly grows dimmer. The leaves in the trees All dance in the breeze And float on the ripples; We're deep in the spell, As nightingales tell Of roses and dew. The memory of This moment of love Will haunt me for ever; A tropical moon, A sleepy lagoon, And you! Stand still, Oh heaven and earth and river. Stand still, Oh time in your endless flight. If love can but command, The moon will stand, The sun won't wake, The day won't break, And it will always be tonight. The leaves in the trees All dance in the breeze And float on the ripples; We're deep in the spell, As nightingales tell Of roses and dew. The memory of This moment of love Will haunt me for ever; A tropical moon, A sleepy lagoon, And you! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2012)
