Do you like this song?

my lyricsbox
get ringtone
When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back the night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory evergreen

I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra's playin'
Even the palms seem to be swayin'
When they begin the beguine

To live it again is past all endeavor
Except when that tune clutches my heart
And there we are swearin' to love forever
And promising never, never to part

What moments divine, what raptures serene
'Til clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
Now, when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted
I know but too well what they mean

So, don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine

Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
'Til the stars that were there before return above you
'Til you whisper to me once more, "Darling, I love you!"
And we suddenly know what heaven we're in
When they begin the beguine
When they begin the beguine
This song is from the album "Today & Yesterday: Celebration In Song" and "Como Swings / For The Young At Heart".
