Lyr. Add: ON A LITTLE STREET IN SINGAPORE
Billy Hill, Peter De Rose, 1938

1
A silver bell upon her ankle
A crimson shawl around her head
A breath of incense in the twilight
To live where mem'ries all have fled:

On a little street in Singapore
We'd meet beside a lotus-covered door
A veil of moonlight on her lonely face
How pale the hands that held me in embrace.

My sails tonight are filled with perfume of Shalimar
And temple bells will guide me to the shore.
And then I'll hold her in my arms and love
the way I loved before,
On a little street in Singapore.

2
My ship's laden with a cargo
of hours of love that I never spent
Beside a temple in the moonlight
A mem'ry of the Orient

Revived more than once by singers of the 1960s-1970s.

When I saw "B. Hill" in the thread title, I thought it would be Benny Hill. Indeed, Benny was responsible for some very clever songs:

Samuel Pepys.

Broken Hearted Lovers' Stew

Outside Mudcat, there is also this website: The Benny Hill Songbook.

Please forgive the thread drift.
