Lyrics:
NOTE: lyrics in (parentheses) are sung by Frank AND backups

(Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely nights) dreamin' of a song
The melody haunts my reverie and I am once again with you
(When our love was new) and each kiss an inspiration
{LONE FEMALE BACKUP} Oh, but that was long ago, and now my consolation is in the        stardust of a
song

(And beside a garden wall, when the stars were bright)
You were in my arms, the nightingale told its fairy tale of paradise where roses grew.
Though I dream in vain, in my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody (the memory of love's refrain)

{instrumental}

Though I dream in vain, in my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody (the memory of love's refrain)

{very brief instrumental)

The memory (of love's refrain)


NOTE: Usual intro NOT sung on this version:

And now the purple dusk of twilight time steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb, always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away, leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday, the music of the years gone by
