Subject: Lyr Req: A song from the 1930's ......????
From: GUEST,Mary V.
Date: 17 Nov 05 - 10:05 PM

Does anyone know the history , sheet music and all the words
to this song ?
My friend used to sing it in grade school in the 30's
and would love to hear from anyone that recognizes this song ?
Thank you from Mary V.

The sky was full of stars .
The moon was _____
and I was full of joy and ecstacy.
So I raised my hat and she raised her eyes .
It was easy as A B C .

I said would you like to cuddle
Would you like a little bit of Love >
She said , course , I'd like to cuddle .
What do you think I'm made of ?

You're really asking the wrong people - put the same query on this forum and I'm sure you'll get results. Plenty of people on both sides of the pond knowledgeable on vintage popular music and song.

Subject: Lyr Add: I RAISED MY HAT (Pola, Steininger)
From: Jim Dixon

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss a request like this.

Here's the catalog entry from The Indiana University Sheet Music Collections:
    Title: I RAISED MY HAT
    Composer: Steininger, Franz
    Name: Pola, Eddie, 1907-
    Role: Lyricist
    Publisher: The Lawrence Wright Music Co.
    Place of publication: London
    Date of publication: 1932
    Call Number: M1 .D48 Box: 050 Item: 073
    Performance Medium: Piano, Voice and Chords
    First Line: It was a lovely summer ev'ning, and I was feeling gay
    Chorus First Line: The sky was full of moon, the moon was full of smiles
    Subject term: Popular song
    Subject term: Lombardo, Guy
Since it's still under copyright, they don't have images of the sheet music online.

However, I've found that it's on 3 recent CDs, listed at allmusic.com:

Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians, "Sweetest Music This Side of Heaven"

Adrian Rollini & His Orchestra, "Complete Brunswick, Parlophone and Vocalion Bunny Berigan Sessions"

Adrian Rollini & His Orchestra, "Key Sessions 1931-1937"

You can also hear it at The Red Hot Jazz Archive. Here's my transcription:

The sky was full of moon. The moon was full of smiles,
And I was full of joy and ecstasy.
So I raised my hat. She raised her eyes.
It was easy as A B C.

The trees were full of birds. The birds were full of song.
The song kept saying, "Kiss her tenderly."
So I raised my arms. She raised her lips.
And now she belongs to me.

I said, "Would you like to cuddle? Would you like a little bit of love?"
She said, "Course I'd like to cuddle. What do you think that I'm made of?"

And now we've got a house. The house is full of rooms.
Of course you know we've got a nursery.
'Cause I raised my hat. She raised her eyes.
Now we're raising a family.

[Note that the sheet music includes at least one verse that is not in the recording, which is not uncommon.]
