Life begins when somebody's eyes
Look into your own
Life begins when you get
Your gal all alone

From morning until twilight
I don't know I'm alive
But I know love begins at 8:45

The stars are gonna twinkle and shine
How they'll shine
This evening about a quarter to nine
My loving arms are going to tenderly twine
Around you around a quarter to nine

I know I won't be late
'Cause at half past eight
I'm going to hurry there

I'll be waiting where the lane begins
Waiting for you on needles and pins
And then the world
Is going to be mine, mine, all mine
This evening about a quarter to nine

I know I won't be late
'Cause at half past eight
I'm going to hurry there

I'll be waiting where the lane begins
Waiting for you on needles and pins
And then the world
Is going to be mine, mine all mine
This evening about a quarter to nine
