(note: frank never sang the intro, only the chorus, after a full musical intro by tommy dorsey’s band)In the region where the roses always bloom,Breathing out upon the air their sweet perfume,Lives a dusky maid I long to call my own,For, I know my love for her will never die;When the sun am sinking in dat golden west,Little robin red breast gone to seek their nests,And I sneak down to dat place I love the best,Ever’y evening there along I sigh.Chorus: ida! sweet as apple cider,Sweeter than all I know,Come out! in the silv’ry moonlight,Of love we’ll whisper, so soft and low!Seems as tho’ can’t live without you,Listen, please, honey do!Ida! I idolize yerI love you, ida, ’deed I do.
