Heaven, I'm in heaven

And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

And I seem to find the happiness I seek

When we're out together dancin' cheek to cheek

 

Heaven, I'm in heaven

And the cares that hung around me through the week

Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak

When we're out together dancin' cheek to cheek

 

Oh, I love to climb a mountain and to reach the highest peak

But it doesn't boot me half as much as dancin' cheek to cheek

Oh I love to go out fishin' in a river or a creek

But I don't enjoy it half as much as dancin' cheek to cheek

 

Dance with me, I want my arm about you

That charm about you will carry me through

 

To heaven, I'm in heaven

And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

And I seem to find that happiness I seek

When we're out together swingin' cheek to cheek

 

<instrumental>

 

Come on and dance with me, I want my arm about you

That charm about you, it will carry me through

 

Right up to heaven, I'm in heaven

And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

And I seem to find that happiness I seek

When we're out together dancin'

Out together dancin'

Out together dancin' cheek to cheek
