ONE WONDERFUL NIGHT
(Words by E. Clinton Keithley, Joe Lyons / Music by Clarence M. Jones, 1914)
From afar in the sky stars were gleaming the moon softly shone from above,
happy was I in my dreaming, happy in dreams of love;
in your eyes then the lovelight was beaming, yearning was my heart for thee,
clasped in your arms "One Wonderful Night" You told me you loved me.
Seems I hear in the twilight your calling, I watch, dear, and wait there for you,
softly like dew that is falling, comes back a love we knew;
then I know by the throb of my heart, dear, just why I'm longing for thee,
I can't forget "One Wonderful night" You told me you loved me.
Love me, love me again, won't you love me again?
My heart's yearning, I'm lonely, I love, love you only;
dreaming, dreaming of you, always dreaming of you,
take me back once again, dear, to "One wonderful night."
