Earworm! The intro by the band lacked amplification, so I missed it.

BAM!

How did you know?

I think I prefer the harmonica version. That lyric needs to be fixed if it's gonna be sung that ponderously.

Actually, I just remembered it - after some significant mental strain. The original version by Bert Kaempfert and His Orchestra was strictly instrumental with the trumpet as the lead instrument. Vocal versions have been recorded by various other folks.

Wonderland by Night
Bert Kaemfert
As sung by Engelbert Humperdinck

Stars hang suspended
Above a floating yellow moon
Two hearts were blended
While angels sang a lover's tune

And so we kissed
Not knowing if our hearts could pay the price
But heaven welcomed us to paradise
Blessing our love

Then came the sunrise
Fading the moon and stars from sight
Recalling always
Our wonderland by night

Stars hang suspended....

Is it already listed in the Truck Driver's Gear Change Hall of Shame?

(C major to D major about halfway through).

Mister Campin, you nearly made me burst out in a roar of laughter right in the middle of the public library here.
