Blue Orchids (1939)
(wm) Hoagy Carmichael (P) Glenn Miller Orchestra (CR) Benny Goodman Orchestra
Refrain: I dreamed of two blue orchids,
Two beautiful blue orchids,
One night while in my lonely room.
I dreamed of two blue orchids so full of love and light,
That I wanted to possess each tender bloom.
Then my dream took wings and through a thousand springs,
Blue orchids seemed in a world apart.
But when I met you something pale and blue
Came stealing from the meadows of my heart.
I saw my two blue orchids, my beautiful blue orchids,
Last night and what a sweet surprise.
When you looked at me, it was plain to see
Blue orchids only bloom in your eyes.
