"Stella by Starlight" is a jazz standard written by Victor Young and featured in The Uninvited, a 1944 film released by Paramount Pictures. Originally played in the film as an instrumental theme song without lyrics, it was turned over to Ned Washington, who wrote the lyrics for it in 1946. The title had to be incorporated into the lyrics, which resulted in its unusual placement: the phrase appears about three quarters of the way through the song, rather than at the beginning or the end.

Ella's accompanied by Lou Levy (p), Herb Ellis (g), Joe Mondragon (b), Stan Levey (d). Recorded June 22, 1961, Los Angeles. (Verve Records)

The song a robin sings
Through years of endless springs
The murmur of a brook at eventide
That ripples by a nook where two lovers hide
A great symphonic theme
That's Stella by starlight and not a dream
She's all of these and more
She's everything that you'd adore

The song a robin sings
Through years of endless springs
The murmur of a brook at eventide
That ripples by a nook where two lovers hide
A great symphonic theme
That's Stella by starlight and not a dream
She's is all of these and more
She's everything that you'd adore

Have you seen Stella by starlite with moon in her hair
That's Stella by starlight raptures so rare

She's is all of these and more
She's everything that you'd adore
