I'm in love with a melody
That captured me
It's a part of my heart
Haunting me and I'm forever saying
Play that dream melody
That soothing refrain
Play it sweet and tenderly
I don't know why it haunts me so
I seem to hear it everywhere I go
Play that magic harmony
'Twill linger forever just like a memory.
Oh let me dream, and play for me that melody.
Night and day like a magic charm
Comes to me constantly
Thrilling me and that's why I keep saying
Ted Koehler (1894—1973), Frank Magine, and C. Naset, 1922
