*I had never heard this song as a vocal -- infact, never knew that it even had lyrics -- until lyrics buddy Ron Hontz located a version recorded by Englebert Humperdink and transcribed for me the words you see above. He raised what I believe to be a question in his note to me -- should Humperdink have sung it "stars hung suspended"?
