DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Req: From Daylight to Starlight
From: Sean Mc
Date: 01 Oct 09 - 05:44 AM

I am looking for the lyrics of a song that I heard 25 - 30 years ago.
I believe it was written by a chap in the Torbay area - but that is not definite.
I only have a few scraps of the chorus but I remember the tune (or so I think).

From daylight, to starlight, in the noisy heat of June,
Dum dum dee dum . . . . .
                                  . . . . of the moon.

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Sean

Is this what you're after?

Many thanks Marje. When I did my initial search here it came to nothing - not sure why.
I also now need to review what I think I know about the tune. Though this is almost definately the song I am not sure about the melody for the second half of the verse - unless it is just repeated.
More digging needed.

Thanks again,
Sean

To find it, I searched for a phrase from the chorus - I think it was "but to reap and bind" - which I knew would bring it up if it was in there.

Thanks for reminding me about it, it's a song I've heard but never got round to learning. But I can't help you with the missing bit of tune because that's exactly the bit I can't remember. I'll watch this thread now and see if anything emerges.

I have the tune - I've been singing this for 30 years. I don't have it written down, but I will do it early next week. I have to dig up my sewage soakaway this weekend!

Phil, is that a metaphor? Could it really mean that you are in the sh*t again? lol

Cheers, Sean

No - it's reality. I've spent the weekend digging down to 6 buried manholes on the soakaway - and now the jetting team are late, damn them!

I should have time for the tune later.
