    "Begin The Beguine" Lyrics

    The Andrews Sisters feat. Bob Crosby

    (Cole Porter)

    When they begin, 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, I'm with you under the stars, under the stars
    And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
    And even the palms seem to be swaying, oh swaying
    When they begin, when they begin the beguine

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

    What moments divine, what rapture serene
    Til clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
    And now when I hear people curse the chance that we wasted
    I know but too well, I know too well, what they mean, too well what they mean

    So let them begin, 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, begin the beguine
    Begin begin begin begin begin begin
    Begin the beguine
