East of the Sun (and West of the Moon)

Lyrics ,Music:Brooks Bowman

The song was publishe 1934.

It was published in 1934 and soon became a hallmark of the Princeton Tigertones,
one of Princeton University's all-male a cappella groups.
The standard is also sung by the Princeton Nassoons,
Princeton University's oldest a cappella group.

"East of the Sun" was first recorded by Hal Kemp for Brunswick Records on
Dec. 1, 1934. A favorite song on campus,
it has been arranged in many different formats,
and continues to be featured on student group albums as recently as 2010.
Since the 1950s the song has become a popular staple of many jazz musicians.

I wish that we could live up in the sky
Where we could find a place away up high
Live among the stars, the sun, the moon
Just you and I

East of the sun and west of the moon
We'll build a dream house of love, dear
Near to the sun in the day
Near to the moon at night
We'll live in a lovely way, dear
Living our love and pale moonlight

Just you and I, forever and a day
Love will not die, we'll keep it that way
Up among the stars we'll find
A harmony of life to a lovely tune
East of the sun and west of the moon, dear
East of the sun and west of the moon
