LM Blog Facebook Crossover Special! The Lyrics to the La Mirada Song from the La Mirada Drive-In?
Hello La Mirada Blog on Facebook fans, now over 1,800 strong!
This is the original La Mirada Blog, where you will find today's La Mirada news. I started this website back in 2003, way before Facebook, and was one of the first to provide any kind of local news on the Internet.
FROM OUR FILES: Check out this reader/listener comment I received about six years ago about. Recently many of you have asked about the 'La Mirada Song' that used to be played at the La Mirada Drive-In. This may be it.
The words and music were written by Don Hecht and copyrighted in 1958 by Sage and Sage Music Publishers in Hollywood:
"Beyond the moon, beyond the sea, there is a place for you and me. It's really paradise to be in La Mirada,
And when the moonlight in the sky reflects the love light in your eyes, you'll know that love will never die in La Mirada,
And love will live in your heart forever more, A land of enchantment outside of your door, We'll kiss beneath the olive tree and then our happiness will be Forever in La Mirada. "
On the back of the sheet music, the late Dick Hurley, the Publisher/Editor of the La Mirada Lamplighter wrote: "La Mirada -The land of the once world famous McNally and Windermere Ranch, and the rancho of the country gentlemen and the ever graceful, evergreen olive, of the turn of the century."
La Mirada Lamplighter December 1st, 1965
