WHILE WE DANCED AT THE MARDI GRAS (Alfred Opler, Johnny Mercer) As recorded by: Bertini & His Band, V. Tom Barratt Recorded 29th October 1932 Also recorded by: Dick Hyman, V. Evan Christopher Al Hirt, Andy Sherwood, Pete Fountain Dukes of Sixieland, Sammy Rimington, Yank Lawson…….. ….and many more. How we danced, as we dreamed at the Mardi Gras Was romance what it seemed at the Mardi Gras Was the love that we made just a brief masquerade Was it gone with the song that the orchestra played With a sigh, with a glance at the moon above Was it just by chance we spoke of love Or did you somehow feel that the wonder was real While we danced at the Mardi Gras. (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - August 2013)
