Mel Tormé - Polka Dots and Moonbeams



A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an "Oh, beg your pardon"
Suddenly I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug-nosed dream

The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said "May I have the next one"
In my frightened arms, those polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled round a pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we crowded over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage built of lilac and laughter
I know the meaning of the words "ever after"
And I'll always see those polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we crowded over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage built of lilac and laughter
I know the meaning of the words "ever after"
And I'll always see those polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream
