VERSE 01: Up in the Alpine mountains many miles away,/There lives a Tyrol lad he’s feeling sad today,/He met a doll who taught him how to love/She’d call him sweetie dear and turtle dove/Now she is gone/He linters on this refrain.
CHORUS: Just like summer Alpine skies above,/Ev’rything is blue, my heart is sad/I’m feelin’ bad/Oh!/I need your lovin’ hon’ to be glad/Baby you just stole my heart and love,/Then you went away,/I’m all alone,/The breezes moan the Alpine blue.
VERSE 02: She never wrote a note or told him a fond goodbye,/Now he is puzzled just to find the reason why,/He never knew she was a vampire bold/Why even all her little tricks were old/Oh! How he fell/Just hear him tell it again.
