Midnight Sun

Music by J Francis Burke and Lionel Hampton
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer

Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice,
Warmer than the Summer night.
The clouds were like an alabaster palace,
Rising to a snowy height.
Each star its own Aurora Borealis,
Suddenly you held me tight,
I could see the midnight sun.
