WALTZ SERENADE (P. I. Tchaikovsky (m) / Earl K. Brent (l) ) As sung by Kathryn Grayson 1945 in the film < Anchors Aweigh > . From the heart of a lonely poet Came a song for the girl he adored Though she tried very hard not to show it She was terribly, terribly bored. But then the poet asked her if she'd like more And her eyes shone, and the moon shone And the stars shone up above. And they danced through the evening together They were swaying To the music of a XX violin. He held her and told her he loved her 'Till the moon faded above her. (coloratura bridge) As they waltzed, though she tried not to show it She was certain she'd fallen in love. (coloratura bridge) And her eyes shone, and the moon shone And the stars shone above her. And they danced through the evening together They were swaying To the music of a XX violin. The spell of the XX There was stardust XX above them. (coloratura bridge) And they waltzed, though she tried not to show it You could see in her eyes a light That she was in love with of a poet And they waltzed through the thrill of the night. (coloratura bridge to end) NOTES: The lyrics for this song were applied to the Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's work, < Serenade for Strings C Major, Op 48 (1880) > . The portion of the 4 movement Serenade which is of concern vis à vis these lyrics is the Valse (the Second Movement). These lyrics appeared in Anchors Aweigh, an MGM 1945 musical containing 25 musical offerings. Director: George Sidney Leads: Frank Sinatra / Kathryn Grayson / Gene Kelly / Dean Stockwell. Kathryn Grayson, an American, was an operatic soprano. She worked several high profile musical films, Anchors Aweigh, Show Boat and Kiss Me Kate to name a few. Later in her career, she worked theatre appearing in Camelot and operas such as La Bohème, Madame Butterfly and La Traviata. (Transcribed by David Story - March 2014)
