Lyrics to 'Charmaine'
(1926 by Erno Rapee and Lew Pollack)

Want to hear the tune?
(opens new window)

I can't forget that night we met,
How bright were skies above,
That precious mem'ry lingers yet,
When you declared your love.

And then you went away,
And now each night and day.

I wonder why you keep me waiting,
Charmaine, my Charmaine,
I wonder when bluebirds are mating,
Will you come back again,

I wonder if I keep on praying
will our dreams be the same.
I wonder if you ever think of me, too,
I am waiting, my Charmaine, for you.

The song Charmaine was composed for the US movie "What Price Glory".
The 2 arguably most famous versions are by Mantovani, and The Bachelors.
