Lyr. Add: DRIFTING AND DREAMING (Sweet Paradise)
Haven Gillespie; music Van Alstyne, Schmidt and Curtis, 1925

Down by the southern sea,
There at Waikiki
Someone waits for me
Beneath the dreamy southern moon;
Hearts are all in time,
Lovers softly croon
Their plaintive melodies of love.

Far, far away in dreams
Where the moonlight gleams,
There I stay, it seems
And while my fancies come and go
One that I love so
Whispers sweet and low
Come back to dreamy paradise

Drifting and dreaming
While shadows fall
Softly at twilight
I hear you call.
Loves old sweet story
Told with your eyes
Drifting and dreaming
Sweet paradise.

Played in 1925 by Ted Lewis. A popular song on "Hawaii Calls"- anyone remember that radio program?
