1942 HITS ARCHIVE: At Last – Glenn Miller (Ray Eberle, vocal)

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
At last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

You smiled and then the spell was cast
Now here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

Little Brown Jug – Música

“Little Brown Jug” is a song written in 1869 by Joseph Eastburn Winner, originally published in Philadelphia with the author listed as Winner’s middle name “Eastburn.”
It was originally a drinking song. It remained well known as a folk song into the early 20th century. Like many songs which make reference to alcohol, it enjoyed new popularity during the Prohibition era. In 1939, bandleader Glenn Miller recorded and broadcast his swing instrumental arrangement of the tune with great success, and the number became one of the best known orchestrations of the American Big Band era.

Mopping up soda pop rickeys
To our heart’s delight
Dancing to swingeroo quickies
Jukebox Saturday night

Goodman and Kyser and Miller
Help to make things bright
Mixing hot licks with vanilla
Jukebox Saturday night

They put nothing past us
Me and honey lamb
Making one Coke last us
Till it’s time to scram

Money we really don’t need bad
We make out alright
Letting the other guy feed that
Jukebox Saturday night

After sipping a soda we got a scheme
Somebody else plays the record machine
It’s so easy to say pet names
When you listen to the trumpet of Harry James…

We love to hear that tenor croon
Whenever the Ink Spots sing a tune…

If I didn’t know why the roses grow
Then I wouldn’t know why the roses grow…
Now listen, honey child
If I didn’t know all them little things I’m supposed to know
Then I sure would be a sad man
If I didn’t know…

Money we really don’t need it
We make out alright
Letting the other guy feed that
Jukebox Saturday night
