The Anniversary Song
by Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin
recorded by Al Jolson - 21 Aug 1946
Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed.
We vowed our true love, though a word wasn't said.
The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies,
Except for the few that were there in your eyes.
Dear as I held you so close in my arms,
Angels were singing a hymn to your charms.
Two hearts gently beating were murmuring low,
"My darling, I love you so!"
The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn,Jolson often sang
The sun shown anew but the dance lingered on.
Could we but relive that sweet moment sublime,
We'd find that our love is unaltered by time.
"Could we but recall that sweet moment sublime"
but the printed lyrics say "relive"!
