Did I see moonlight and magnolia trees?
Smile again, my darling, if you please.
Did I hear music on a warm spring breeze?
Speak again, my darling, if you please.
Did I feel cool September rain just then?
If you please, touch my cheek with your hand again.
When you are near me I can dream with ease,
And I’m yours, my darling, if you please.
[instrumental]
Did I feel cool September rain just then?
If you please, touch my cheek with your hand again,
When you are near me I can dream with ease
And I’m yours, my darling, if you please
