One Summer Night

“Oh, the summer night
Has a smile of light
And she sits on a sapphire throne.

- Bryan Waller Procter
(a.k.a. Barry Cornwall)
(21 Nov 1787 - 05 Oct 1874)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Y'all know I'm a big sucker for dreamy old songs such as this!

BONUS - One Summer Night - The Danleers, 1958


The Danleers was an American doo-wop group in the 1950s. They were a quintet hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Jimmy Weston was the lead singer, and the group was named after their manager, Danny Webb, who wrote their most famous number, "One Summer Night". The track was originally released on AMP-3 2115, as being by The Dandleers...

Their one big hit single (and their debut single), "One Summer Night" (b/w "Wheelin and A-Dealin'"), reached #4 on the Billboard Black Singles chart, and #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1958.[1]

Jenny King's Summer Night Sweater - "A flattering neckline and classic silhouette will make this a sweater to enjoy for many years. Choose navy or any of the colors of this popular yarn and contrast the sleeves and lower edge with another shade."


Mindy Lewis' Summer Night's Top - "Knitting patterns for spring and summer must be two things: lightweight and lacy. This beautiful Summer Night's Top has both of those qualities in addition to adorable button fasteners. This is a great project for a beginner who is itching to try out some lace knitting."

One Summer Night

Written by Danny Webb

Recorded by The Danleers, 1958

One summer night, we fell in love
one summer night, I held you tight
you and I, under the moon of love, moon of love

One summer night, I kissed your lips
one summer night, I held you close
you and I, under the moon of love

You kissed me oh, so tenderly
and I knew this was love
and I as held you, oh so close
I knew no one could ever take your place, ohhhh

One summer night, we fell in love
one summer night, I held you tight
you and I, under the moon of love, moon of love
