IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Lady Of The Evening

IRVING BERLIN
"Lady Of The Evening"

[1st verse:]
After the gray of a long dreary day comes the evening
Peaceful and calm as a sheltering palm is the evening
Daytime has gone to rest, there in the golden west
Soon little stars will appear in the sky
Seeming to say, "We are here, hush-a-bye"

[Refrain:]
Evening, lady of the evening
I can hear you calling me

Calling, while the shades are falling
Falling over land and sea

You can make the cares and troubles
That followed me through the day
Fold their tents just like the Arabs
And silently steal away

Evening, lady of the evening
I hear you calling me

[2nd verse:]
After the sun when its day's work is done comes the evening
Then with the night comes the angels who light up the evening
There in the sky they stand, each with a torch in hand
Then one by one, little stars in the sky
Look down and say, "We are here, hush-a-bye"
