Sycamore Leaves In Fall


Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper, I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me.
Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me.
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me.
~Gus Kahn

Did you know "Dream a Little Dream of Me" was first recorded by Ozzie Nelson and his Orchestra with vocal by Nelson on February 16, 1931?

Is that leaves on water?? Whatever it is, it is wonderful.

That is a lovely picture! Leaves for real and in reflection. Beautiful!

I didn't know that was ever a Nelson song, but I like the way The Mamas and the Papas did it. I think it is their recording that I started hearing as I read the words, any way!

Lovely picture and nice connection with the song -- very fun post.

Ozzie Nelson as in Ozzie and Harriet and David and (sob) Ricky? I guess I do sort of remember that he was a bandleader in real-life.
Off to Google ;>)

Golden oldie. Hadn't thought about that song in a long time. Brings back memories. Ozzie Nelson! I had a crush on the Nelson boys for a while when I was young.

There is a song in my head now!

I have Mama Cass singing that on my little shuffle ipod. It's one of my favorites. Didn't know about Ozzie Nelson's version.
