Q (Frank Staplin) Lyr Add: You and the Night and the Music (1) Lyr Add: YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC 19 Oct 14


Lyr. Add: YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC
Music Arthur Schwartz; lyrics Howard Dietz, 1934

Song in the air
Telling us romance is ours to share
Now at last we've found one another alone-
(Incomplete?)

As sung by Julie London:

You and the night and the music
Fill me with flaming desire
Setting my being completely on fire.
You and the night and the music
Thrill me but will we be one
After the night and the music are done?

Until the pale light of dawning and daylight
Our hearts will be throbbing guitars;
Morning may come without warning
And take away the stars.

If we must live for the moment
Love till the moment is through;
After the night and the music die
Will I have you?

Until the pale light of dawning
And daylight
Our hearts will be throbbing guitars
Morning may come without warning
And take away the stars.

You and the night and the music.......

The song was debuted in the Broadway show, "Revenge with Music," 1934, based on the Spanish tale, "El Sombrero de Tres Picos," novel by Pedro A. Alarcon.
Song sung by Libby Holman.
The song was used again in "The Band Wagon."
