I'm looking for the complete lyrics of this old song. The chorus is something like this:
    Blow out the candle, blow out the candle, blow out the candle, so the neighbours won't see,
    Won't you blow out the candle so there will be no scandal, and no one will know, you've been kissing me.

Thanks a bunch!

THere is a thread on this, "Blow the Candles Out" is the title you are looking for. Not blicky literate, but you can do a forum search. It is the first one up that you want. Rise Up Singing also has this listed. If you can't find, will post lyrics.

Actually that is a different song. This one is more of a 20s/30s type of song called "blow out the candle". And the chorus words are exactly what I've written above. But thanks for the attempt.

I was able to transcribe this much from a sample:

BLOW OUT THE CANDLE - excerpt
Phil Moore

Oh, darling dear, it's awfully late. The clock has just struck one.
Honey, give me another kiss or two. First promise, then you'll run.
Better blow out the candle. Yes, yes, blow out the candle.
Blow out the candle so the neighbors can't see.
Won't you blow out the candle so there will be no....

[Recorded as a duet by Toni Arden and her brother Jan Arden with Percy Faith and His Orchestra, 1952. On 2 Toni Arden albums: "I Can Dream, Can't I?: A Singer's Singer" (2005) and "This Is Toni Arden" (2005).

[There is a lot of information about Toni Arden at Saxony Record Company.]

My transcription from the recording found on Spotify:


BLOW OUT THE CANDLE
Written by Phil Moore
As sung by Toni Arden and Jan Arden

1. [Female voice:] Oh, darlin' dear, it's awf'ly late.
The clock has just struck one.
[Male voice:] Honey, give me another kiss or two.
[F:] First promise then you'll run.

CHORUS: [M:] Better blow out the candle. [F:] Yes, yes, blow out the candle.
[Both:] Blow out the candle so the neighbors can't see.
Won't you blow out the candle so there will be no scandal,
And no one will know you've been kissin' me.

2. [M:] Oh, darling dear, time goes so fast!
I know it's after two.
Why, anyone can see I'm a man of past.
[F:] Yes, my lipstick looks cute on you. CHORUS

3. [F:] Oh, darlin' dear, I'm helpless.
My resistance is gone, I fear,
[M:] But before you snuff the last candle,
Tell me once more you love me, dear.

[B:] So we blew out the candle, blew out the candle,
Blew out the candle so the neighbors wouldn't see.
Yes, we blew out the candle so there would be no scandal,
And only then did we realize
That the dawn comes up like thunder
And the sun shone, yes, the sun shone,
Yes, the sun shone right in our eyes!
Aw, shucks!


[This has the flavor of a show tune, but I have been unable to confirm this. The sheet music says: "Recorded by Dorothy Dandridge & Phil Moore" (according to WorldCat.org).]

This link is just additional info about Moore. However, Jim's surmise that it's a show tune sure fits the bio (and Moore's life in the music/stage business).
