Слова: S. Mozewsky
Англійські слова: "Anniversary Song" - Al Jolson
Мелодія: "Valurile Dunării" - Ion Ivanovici
Ой, як колись в тиху ніч ми удвох
Веселі були і в коханню жили.
Весь світ був, зацвив і зірки
В небесах сіяли, блищали як в твоїх очах.
 
Ми так стояли в обіймах тісних
А соловейко співав та й затих
Серденька наші шептали усе
О, серце, люблю тебе. (2)
 
Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed
We vowed our true love, though a word wasn't said
The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
Except for the few that were there in your eyes
 
Dear, as I held you so close in my arms
Angels were singing a hymn to your charms
Two hearts gently beating, murmuring low
My darling, I love you so (2)
 
Ми так стояли в обіймах тісних
А соловейко співав та й затих
Серденька наші шептали усе
О, серце, люблю тебе.

Історія[ ]

Written by Tony the Troubador (aka Tony Stecheson) according to Ron Cahute. - Phone interview with Ron Cahute conducted by Danylo Centore 21 August, 2020. This turned out to be INCORRECT once the original Tony the Troubador 78 was tracked down.

I have so far been unable to find the original recording. However, there is a 1947 Toronto radio guide which mentions both Tony the Troubadour and the Anniversary Song, suggesting Tony was actively singing and aware of the song at the time it was popular.

Found the original record by the "Troubador" label cat# 2056. The credits on this label say "Ukrainian lyric - S. Mozewsky" - it is unclear who this refers to. Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Tony-The-Troubador-Anniversary-SongThe-Cossack-Rides-To-Battle/release/8927477
