Blue Orchids

Glenn Miller

Blue OrchidsGlenn Miller- words and music by Hoagy CarmichaelI dreamed of two blue orchidsTwo beautiful blue orchidsOne night while in my lonely roomI dreamed of two blue orchidsSo full of love and lightThat I wanted to possess each tender bloomThen my dream took wingsAnd through a thousand springsBlue orchids seemed in a world apartBut when I met youSomething pale and blueCame stealing from the meadows of my heartI saw my two blue orchidsMy beautiful blue orchidsLast night and what a sweet surpriseWhen you looked at meIt was plain to seeBlue orchids only bloom in your eyes------------------------------------------
