Mrr, Shame on you! The band got their name from the song.
-Joe Offer-
(words by Mitchell Parish, music by Peter DeRose, 1934)

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls.
And the stars begin to flicker in the sky
Through the mist of a memory,
You wander back to me.
Breathing my name with a sigh.

In the still of the night,
Once again I'll hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on
When moonlight beams.
And as long as my heart will beat,
Lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams.

It was also recorded by Nino Tempo and April Stevens in the 1960's
