Prelude to a Kiss

If you hear a song in blue
like a flower crying for dew
That was my heart serenading you
My prelude to a kiss

If you hear a song that grows
from my tender sentimental woes
That was my heart trying to compose
A prelude to a kiss

Though it's just a simple melody
with nothing fancy, nothing much
You could turn it to a symphony -
a Schubert tune with a Gershwin touch
Oh! How my love song gently cries
for the tenderness within your eyes
My love is a prelude that never dies
A prelude to a kiss.

Though it's just a simple melody
with nothing fancy, nothing much

Oh! How my love song gently cries
for the tenderness within your eyes
My love is a prelude that never dies
A prelude to a kiss.

Prelude to a Kiss, Duke Ellington, 1938

Sigh. More music should be like this.
