Lyrics

Let our affair be a gay thing
And when these hours have flown
Then, without forgetting happiness that is past
There'll be no regretting fun that didn't quite last
Let's look on love as a plaything
All these sweet moments we've known
Mustn't be degraded
When the thrill of them has faded
Let's say goodbye and leave it alone

Teach me to dance
Like grandma used to dance
I refuse to dance
Blues
Blackbottoms, Charlestons-what wind blew them in?
Monkeys do them in
Zoos
Back in the past the dancing singified
Just a dignified
Glow
They didn't have to be so strong
Though they revolved the whole night long
Teach me to dance like grandma used to dance
Sixty summers ago

We were dancing
And the gods must have found it entrancing
For they smiled
On a moment undefiled
By the care and woe that mortals know
We were dancing
And the music and lights were enhancing our desire
When the world caught on fire
She and I were dancing

Sigh no more, sigh no more
Great clouds of sorrow fill the sky no more
Joy is your troubador
Sweet and beguiling ladies, sigh no more
Sigh no more
Sweet and beguiling ladies, sigh no more

Play to me beneath the Summer moon
Zigeuner
Zigeuner
Zigeuner!
Now you have me in your power
Play to me for just an hour
Zigeuner!

You were there
Your eyes looked into mine and faltered
Everywhere, the colour of the whole world altered
False became true
My universe tumbled in two
The earth became heaven for you were there

Nevermore. Nevermore
Can life be quite the same
The light and shadows change
All the old familiar world is strange
Evermore, evermore
Our hearts are in the flame
Others may regain their freedom
But for you and me
Never, never, more

Though our worlds may go awry
Though the years my tears may dry
I shall love you till I die

Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday sun!

Play to me beneath the Summer moon
Zigeuner
Zigeuner
Zigeuner!

All I ask of life
Is just to listen to the songs that you sing
My spirit like a bird on the wing
Your melodies adoring
Soaring!

Call to me with some barbaric tune
Zigeuner
Zigeuner
Zigeuner!

Now you have me in your power
Play to me for just an hour
Zigeuner

Let our affair be a gay thing
And when these hours have flown
Then without forgetting happiness that is past
There'll be no regretting fun that didn't quite last
Let's look on love as a plaything
All these sweet moments we've known
Mustn't be degraded
When the thrill of them has faded
Let's say goodbye and leave it alone

Teach me to dance like grandma used to dance, I refuse to dance blues
Blackbottoms, Charlestons, what wind blew them in
Monkeys do them in zoos
Back in the past the dancing singified
Just a dignified glow
They didn't have to be so strong
Though they revolved the whole night long
Teach me to dance like grandma used to dance

Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday
Out in the midday sun!
