You Dovm Lyrics by Vaughn Monroe

 

You Dovm by Vaughn Monroe


When the Lights Go On Again All Over the World
Vaughn Monroe and His Orchestra
Written by Eddie Seller, Sol Marcus, and Bennie Benjamin

Peaked at # 1 in 1943
Competing version by Lucky Millinder hit # 12
Title song from the 1944 film



*When the lights go on again all over the world*
And the boys are home again all over the world
And rain or snow is all that may fall from the skies above
A kiss won't mean "goodbye" but "Hello to love"

When the lights go on again all over the world
And the ships will sail again all over the world
Then we'll have time for things like wedding rings and free hearts will sing
When the lights go on again all over the world



When the lights go on again all over the world


TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: This was a mid-WW2 song. *Title* refers to the practice of having to
black out possible bombing targets and to avoid back-lighting torpedo targets for offshore U-
boats.
