A Song Is In My Heart Again

Music today, and transcribing song ideas long written down. I've got a huge pile of papers with notes of music on. I'll never get through them all! This one is a silly bit of fun with a simple 3/4 lolloping melody not too different from Marble Halls. Definitely to be sung by a 1930's tenor dressed like a French foreign legionnaire!

A song is in my heart again
and love is in my soul.
A song is in my heart again
while I am on patrol.
My legs are in the desert sun
my heart's with you at home.
A song is in my heart today
no matter where I roam.

I think of you.
I think of me.
I see the desert dust.
I think of all the words you wrote,
the words of love and lust!

A song is in my heart again
and love is in my soul.
There's fire in my gun again
while I am on patrol.
The endless sand is everywhere
and hardship all I find,
but still a song is in my heart
for you are on my mind.

But still a song is in my heart
for you are on my mind.

Funny! This would be good for a spoof.
