THE LAMPLIGHTER'S SERENADE (Paul Francis Webster / Hoagy Carmichael) Turner Layton Also recorded by : Hoagy Carmichael; Bing Crosby; Tommy Dorsey; George Evans; The Four Freshmen; Geraldo & Orch.; Ken Griffin; Glenn Miller; Gertrude Niesen; Frank Sinatra. A moment after dark around the park, an old-fashion gent comes parading, Dressed in fancy clothes but singing as he goes, The Lamplighter's Serenade. The old boy loves to talk with couples on the walk, but when it's half after love time, He reaches for his sticks and from his bag of tricks, he lights every star in the sky. And if a lady or a beau should answer No, he sprinkles their hearts with his magic, Then he steals away to sing another day, The Lamplighter's Serenade My how time goes flying back, itís 1893 A Strummer one horse open hack There steps a grand old memory (Instrumental Interlude) A moment after dark around the park, an old-fashion gent comes parading, Dressed in fancy clothes but singing as he goes, The Lamplighter's Serenade. The old boy loves to talk with couples on the walk, but when it's half after love time, He reaches for his sticks and from his bag of tricks, he lights every star in the sky. And if a lady or a beau should answer No, he sprinkles their hearts with his magic, Then he steals away to sing another day, The Lamplighter's Serenade (Contributed by Bill Huntley - December 2004)
