Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Dear one, Dear one, I realize,
In your arms, I found Paradise,
And though the time is near to say ‘Goodbye,” I hate to go
For I love you so, Oh!

[Verse 2]
Dear one, Dear one, let me confess,
In your arms, I find happiness
When we’re alone, the world is all our own.
My heart’s at ease;
That’s just why I tease
Please,

[Chorus]
Let me linger longer in your arms,
Give me all your sweet and tender charms
While the stars are twinkling up adobe you,
Let me tell you just much I love you.
Wond’rous night of bliss, a hug, a kiss,
I’ve been waiting only just for this,
So while the moon is shining through the palms,
Let me linger longer in your arms.
