    When they begin the beguine
    It brings back the sound of music so tender
    It brings back a night of tropical splendor
    It brings back a memory ever green

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

    To live it again is past all endeavor
    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 come 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 the beguine
