Venetian Moon

Venetian Moon

Year 1919

Lyrics by Gus Kahn
Music by Phil Goldberg and Frank Magini

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  First Verse
Gone are the cares of the day, Night Calls my sorrow away With you in fancy I stray, While of a silvery stream I dream.

Second Verse
Bright were the stars in the sky, Lighting the tear in your eye, While you were sighing "Goodbye" Vainly I've tried to forget we met.

Chorus
'Neath the pale Venetian Moon(There are stars that twinkle) and guitars that tinkle), Drifting on a blue lagoon(In moonlight playing 'Mid the shadows swaying,), Melodies you sang to me; Memories shall ever be Long ago and far away(Tender voices blending Just a message sending)Still in dreams, I hear you say(Lonely tips are missing Lips that spoke of kissing) We shall meet some other June, 'Neath the pale Venetian Moon.

Dry Your Tears

Dry Your Tears

Year 1918

Words and Music by Art Hickman and Ben Black

Sherman, Clay and Co.
San Francisco

  First Verse
Sweetheart mine, don't look so sad dear, Tell me why you feel so bad dear, Can it be because I'm going away? There's a teardrop in your eye dear, Now you know you must not cry dear, For I'm coming back and when I do I'm going to stay.

Second Verse
Springtime comes the birds are singing, All the bells are gayly rining, Boy and girl are back together again. In their eyes the love shines brightly, Both their hearts are beating lightly, For they both recall these wondrous words and this sweet refrain:

Chorus
So dry your tears, life was meant for laughter, The rain comes first and the sunshine ater; Now don't you cry, just smile and be brave, Won't you try to make those tear drops behave. Dry your tears, life was meant for gladness, Forget your troubles and fears; If you'll be happy and gay the clouds will soon roll away, So won't you dry your tears.

I'm Going To Settle Down, Outside Of London Town (When I'm Dry, Dry Dry)

Year 1919

Words by Joe McCarthy
Music by James V. Monaco

McCarthy and Fisher Inc.
224 W. 46th Street
New York

  First Verse
America, I must say I love you, You've more than a mother to me, And although I must stray I must go away Still my home you will always be, So goodbye, I am leaving you soon, I must sail with the last day of June

Second Verse
America, you're such a young nation, You are just like a big bouncing boy You've been happy and gay, I loved you that way Your freedom the world could enjoy I am sorry to leave you behind I'll come back here when you've changed your mind

Chorus
I'm goin' to settle down, outside of London Town, Down in a village by the sea, And you will find me there with the country air Where everything is free And when I'm over there, My heart will still be here And I hate to say "Goodbye" But I'm a man who must have a little liquor when I'm dry, dry dry.
