FABLE OF THE ROSE, THE (Joseph Myrow / Bickley Reichner) as recorded by Tommy Dorsey & his Orchestra (vocal - Frank Sinatra) March 12th 1940 New York Starry night, This is the fable of the rose The rose I gave my love. So young and tender, so in bloom, Filled with a faint perfume, Is lying crushed and faded in a room. Starry night, This is the fable of the rose, The rose I gave my love. Beyond all dreams of her caress, I may as well confess She only loved me slightly, maybe less! Yet her smile so strangely haunts me, All the thrill of it taunts me, And so it goes, The fable of the rose. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2016)
