Repassez-moi l'standard... "Moonlight in Vermont" written by John Blackburn & music Karl Suessdorf (1944)

"Au delà d’être cette délicieuse mélodie "Moonlight in Vermont" est aussi l’hymne du petit état rural du Vermont dans le nord des États-Unis, connu pour ses paysages bucoliques qu’évoquent la chanson, non loin de la frontière avec le Québec. Ce thème est joué à chaque cérémonie de mariage." L.Valero

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely
Ev'ning summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont.

Telegraph cables, how they sing down the highway
And they travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Ev'ning summer breeze
The warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont.
