Prime Artist: Unknown
Lyrics by: Arthur Francis (pseudonym for Ira Gershwin)
Lyrics by: Ira Gershwin (b. Israel Gershvin)
Music by: Vincent Youmans
Outtake from: Piccadilly To Broadway 1920 (S)
Cares of day will fade away
While all the world is asleep.
Moon so bright our course will light
Until the sun starts to peep.
Gondolier, take me far away
To some mystic shore
Where lovers' hearts are light.
Gently steer, while the moonbeams play
And the zephyrs murmur softly
Through the night.
Drift along with a simple song,
One you know from long ago.
Gondolier, on the silv'ry streams,
We'll go floating through the land of dreams.
