Lyrics Begin the Beguine

When they begin the beguine it brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendour
It brings back a memory evergreen
I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine
To live it again is past all endeavour
Except when that tune clutches my heart
And there we are swearing to love forever
And promising never never to part
What moments divine what rapture serene
'Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
And 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
'Till the stars that were there before return above you
'Till 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
Let them play, let them play let them play the beguine
