Dolores

Writer(s): Frank Loesser / Louis Alter
Sung with the Pied Pipers

How I love the kisses of Dolores, aye-aye-aye Dolores
Not Marie or Emily or Doris, only my Dolores
From a balcony above me, she whispers Love me and throws a rose
Ah but she is twice as lovely, as the rose she throws
I would die to be with my Dolores, aye-aye-aye Dolores
I was made to serenade Dolores, chorus after chorus
Just imagine eyes like moonrise, a voice like music, lips like wine
What a break if I could make Dolores, mine all mine.
I would die to be with my Dolores, aye-aye-aye Dolores
I was made to serenade Dolores, chorus after chorus
Just imagine eyes like moonrise, a voice like music, lips like wine
What a break if I could make Dolores, mine all mine.

In Frank’s version, the Pied Pipers sing words in (parentheses). Frank AND the Pied Pipers sing those in [brackets]

How I love the kisses of Dolores
(Oh, I love her) [aye-aye-aye] Dolores
Not Marie or Emily or Doris
(None of them but) only my Dolores (just Dolores)
From a balcony above me,
She whispers “Love me” and throws a rose
Ah, but she is twice as lovely
As the rose she throws
I would die to be with my Dolores
(To be near her)[aye-aye-aye] Dolores
I was made to serenade Dolores
Serenade her)[chorus after chorus]
Just imagine eyes like moonrise
A voice like music, lips like wine
What a break if I could make Dolores
Mine all mine.
(instrumental)
I would die to be with my Dolores
(To be near her)[aye-aye-aye] Dolores
I was made to serenade Dolores
(Serenade her)[chorus after chorus]
Just imagine eyes like moonrise
A voice like music, lips like wine
What a break if I could make Dolores
[Mine, all mine]
