(Tom Shapiro/Chuck Jones/Sharon Vaughn)

Under the stars,
Spanish guitars sing the Santa Maria
Outside my room, the music's playing
On a sweet bougainvillea breeze, romantically
Oh, but not for me.

There's a ring of ice around the moon
And it's making me shiver
It seemed so warm when I had you
But all the others I've known
Leave me chilled to the bone
Baby, since you've been gone,
All I'm left with is cold kisses.

My pride has tried to build a fire
That's as bright as your memory
But I can't give what has been given
I just don't have it in me now
I'm all closed down
And the fire's burned out.

There's a ring of ice around the moon
And it's making me shiver
It seemed so warm when I had you
But all the others I've known
Leave me chilled to the bone
Baby, since you've been gone,
All I'm left with is cold kisses.

Like a rose in the snow
That won't bloom and can't grow

There's a ring of ice around the moon
And it's making me shiver
It seemed so warm when I had you
But all the others I've known
Leave me chilled to the bone
Baby, since you've been gone,
All I'm left with is cold kisses.

Cold kisses, cold kisses
