"Shake Down the Stars" as written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Eddie De Lange....
Shake down the stars,
Pull down the clouds,
Turn off the moon,
Do it soon!
I can't enjoy this night without you,
Shake down the stars.

Dry up the streams,
Stop all my dreams,
Cut off the breeze,
Do it please!
I never thought I'd cry about you,
Shake down the stars.

I gave you my arms, my lips, my heart,
My love, my life, my all;
But the best that I had to offer you
I found was all too small.

Crush every rose,
Hush every prayer,
Break every vow,
Do it now!
I know I cannot live without you,
Shake down the stars.
