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

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

    To live it again is past all endeavor
    Except when that tune clutches my heart
    And there we are swearin' to love forever
    And promising never, never to part

    What moments divine, what raptures serene
    'Til clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
    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
    'Til the stars that were there before return above you
    'Til 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
