Love Me Tonight
Bing Crosby Lyrics


Oh, what a night for romancing,
Stars in the sky above
This is our chance for sweet romance
Let's make this a night of love

Here we are together, the moon is hanging low
There's magic in its silvery light
It seems to say the time is right
Love me tonight.
Life is so uncertain and no one seems to know
How long we have to linger on
Tomorrow we may both be gone
Love me tonight

Oh let me feel your arms
And let me feel your kiss
Then if this great big world must end
Oh let it end like this

My lips are yours forever, my heart is in your hand
My love is yours to have, to hold
Don't wait until the moon is old
Love me tonight.

Oh let me feel your arms
And let me feel your kiss
Then if this great big world must end
Oh let it end like this

My lips are yours forever, my heart is in your hand
My love is yours to have, to hold
Don't wait until the moon is old
Love me tonight.

I will never forget the first time I ever put a tone arm down on this SUPER STAR AWESOME Bing Brunswick, I MELTED! It is one of those rare Records that You not only hear, But Visualize and feel! You can picture a Romantic night BEAUTIFUL Full Moon above and the one You Love snuggled on Your Shoulder!

Trombonology Erstwhile

One of my favorite Bing sides of this period. Though he was still very much in his "Ardent Lover" interpretive phase, he shows a restraint that contrasts so effectively with the very direct, for the times, lyrics. Tram responds accordingly with a lovely, subdued solo. An atmospheric gem, and the lyrics, "Life is so uncertain, and no one seems to know/How long we have to linger on/Tomorrow we may both be gone/Love me tonight" and "Then if this great big world must end/Oh let it end like this" are so representative of the existential philosophy that so many people adopted in the cataclysm of the Great Depression.

Trombonology Erstwhile

@Henri de Lagardère Indeed! -- à la "If I Could Be With You."

Henri de Lagardère

And if this great big world really does end, this will be the way, neither with a bang nor a whimper but an invitation à la Armstrong: [2:57] "won't you lóve me tonight?!"

Darryl C Preston

Not an easy melody to follow, if the task of singing it falls on your shoulders. Bing was in between styles in 1932; that may have increased the challenge.

Bing of course always terrific but for me the Annette Hanshaw version just drips with pathos .

Elliot's Oldies

Agreed
