Melodie D'Amour
Stanley Black & His Orchestra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Melodie d'amour, take this song to my lover
Shoo shoo little bird, go and find my love
Melodie d'amour, serenade at her window
Shoo shoo little bird, sing my song of love

Oh tell her I will wait, if she names a date
Tell her that I care, more than I can bear
For when we are apart, how it hurts my heart
So fly oh fly away and say that I hope and pray
This lovers melody will bring her back to me

Melodie d'amour, take this song to my lover
Shoo shoo little bird, go and find my love
Melodie d'amour, serenade at her window
Shoo shoo little bird, tell her of my love

Oh tell her how I yearn, long for her return
Say I miss her so, more than she could know
For when we are apart, how it hurts my heart
So fly oh fly away and say that I hope and pray
This lover's melody will bring her back to me





Melodie d'amour, serenade at her window
Shoo shoo little bird, tell her of my love
