Goodnight, Vienna

(Eric Maschwitz / Geo.Posford)


Roy Fox and his Band.


Goodnight Vienna,
You city of a million melodies
Our hearts are thrilling to the strains that you play
From dawn till the daylight dies


Goodnight Vienna,
Where moonlight fills the air with mystery
And eyes are shining to the gypsy guitars
That sing to the starry sky


Enchanted city of Columbine and Pierrot
We know the magic of your spell
Of our romances, you’re the hero
Now is the time to say farewell


Goodnight Vienna
Now lovers kiss beneath your linden tree
The world is waiting on the edge of the day
Just waiting to say goodnight
