Begin The Beguine - Lyrics

When you begin the heroin
You dream of music so tender
A night of tropical splendour
When you begin the heroin

I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore, an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When you begin the heroin

To live it again is past all endeavour
Except when that tune clutches my heart
What moment divine, what rapture serene
When you begin the heroin

The stars that were there before return above you
And I whisper once more, "Darling, I love you"
And suddenly in Heaven you'll be in
When they begin the heroin
The heroin
