Bert Reisfeld (Vienna, 1906 - Badenweiler, 1991) was a lyricist, noted for adapting lyrics to well-known songs either to or from English. The songs he wrote English lyrics for include:[1]

  • "The Three Bells", adapted from the French song "Les trois cloches" by Jean Villard Gilles and Marc Herrand

He also co-wrote the instrumental "Morning Mood" with Glenn Miller in 1941 as a trombone solo with piano accompaniment.[2]
