Night Time In Old Shanghai

“Night Time In Old Shanghai,” by Whitey Smith and the Majestic Hotel Orchestra. The song was released on a 1928 Victor recording.

“When it’s night time in dear old Shanghai
and I’m dancing, sweetheart, with you.
Then it’s bright time in dear old Shanghai
with our lips, oh, felt so true.
In my arms, dear, long way from home, dear
we’ll let the rest of the world go by.
While the moon shines bright we will make love
when it’s night time in old Shanghai.”
