a sailboat in the moonlight lyrics – billie holiday

carmen lombardo / john jacob loeb

a sailboat in the moonlight
and you
wouldn’t that be heaven
a heaven just for two
a soft breeze on a june night and you
what a perfect setting
for letting dreams come true

a chance to sail away
to sweetheart bay
beneath the stars that shine
a chance to drift
for you to lift
your tender lips to mine
some things dear
that i long for are few
just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you

a chance to sail away
to sweetheart bay
beneath the stars that shine
a chance to drift
for you to lift
your tender lips to mine
some things dear
that i long for are few
just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you
