Listen how our happy hearts are beating
Like the ocean beats upon the sand
And our feet in rhythm keep repeating
Every little movement of the band

Sweet music soft and mellow
Soothing and slow
Strains of a mellow cello
When lights are low

Dear, we're so close together
I love you so
Why think about the weather
When lights are low

Two hearts revealing
Music hath charms
Life's so appealing
With inspiration in your arms

Our lips meeting soft and tender
Love's all aglow
Why shouldn't we surrender
When lights are low

Sweet music soft and mellow
Strains of a mellow cello

I mean, dear, we're so close together
Why think about the weather
When lights are low?

Two hearts revealing
Music hath charms
Life's so appealing
With inspiration in your arms

Our lips meeting soft and tender
Love's all aglow
Why shouldn't we surrender
When lights are low?

When lights are low
When lights are low
