Stars Fell On Alabama by Guy Lombardo  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Stars Fell On Alabama Speak Low
Guy Lombardo
(words by Ogden Nash; music by Kurt Weill)

Introduced by Mary Martin in the musical "One Touch of Venus."
Sung by Eileen Wilson (dubbed for Ava Gardner) and Dick Haymes in the 1948
film version of "One Tough of Venue."
Best-selling record in 1944 by Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians,
vocal by Billy Leach.

Speak low when you speak, love,
Our summer day withers away
Too soon, too soon.
Speak low when you speak, love,
Our moment is swift, like ships adrift,
We're swept apart too soon.
Speak low, darling speak low,
Love is a spark lost in the dark,
Too soon, too soon,
I feel wherever I go
That tomorrow is near, tomorrow is here
And always too soon.
Time is so old and love so brief,
Love is pure gold and time a thief.
We're late darling, we're late,
The curtain descends, ev'rything ends
Too soon, too soon,
I wait darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me,
Speak love to me and soon.


From: Gloria "Montcomags"
