There's a silver trail of moonlight Leading upward to the sky And the night is like a velvet lullaby There's a heaven of blue And we'll go there just you and I Let's build a stairway to the stars And climb that stairway to the stars With Love beside us To fill the night with a song We'll hear the sound of violins Out yonder where the blue begins The moon will guide us As we go drifting along Can't we sail away on a lazy daisy petal Over the rim of the hill Can't we sail away on a little dream And settle high on the crest of a thrill Let's build a stairway to the stars A lovely stairway to the stars It would be heaven To climb to heaven with you TRIVIA: Violinist Matt Malneck and pianist Frank Signorelli originally wrote the music in 1934 as the finale section of the extended piece "Park Avenue Fantasy". It was recorded under that title by Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra in that same year. Mitchell Parish added lyrics a few years later and it became "Stairway To The Stars".
