Prelude to a Kiss

Lyrics:Irving Gordon ,Irving Mills
Music:Duke Ellington

The song was publishe 1938.

On August 9, 1938, Duke Ellington and His Orchestra,
featuring Johnny Hodges,
recorded "Prelude to a Kiss" for the Brunswick label.
A second version was recorded fifteen days later for the Vocalion label.
This time it was by Johnny Hodges
and His Orchestra with vocalist Mary McHugh.



If you hear a song in blue
Like a flower crying for the dew
That was my heart serenading you
My prelude to a kiss

If you hear a song that grows
From my tender sentimental woes
That was my heart trying to compose
A prelude to a kiss

Though it's just a simple melody
With nothing fancy, nothing much
You could turn it to a symphony
A Schubert tune with a Gershwin touch

Oh how my love song gently cries
For the tenderness within your eyes
My love is a prelude that never dies
A prelude to a kiss
