Lyr. Add: Jeannine (I Dream of Lilac Time)
Nathaniel Shilkret, L. Wolfe Gilbert, 1928
Lilacs in bloom, rarest perfume,
Tells me that waiting is ended.
Springtime is here, soon you'll be near,
When all our heartaches are mended.
Close in my arms fond embraces,
Once more in happiest places-
Jeannine, I dream of lilac time
Your eyes, they beam, in lilac time
Your winning smile,
And cheeks blushing like a rose
Yet all the while
You sigh while nobody knows-
Jeannine, my queen of lilac time
When I return, I'll make you mine
For you and I
Our love can never die
Jeannine, I dream of lilac time.
(Last verse repeated after break in 1928 Gene Austin recording.)
The 1928 film, "Lilac Time," starred Gary Cooper.
