Lyrics

[Verse 1]
If you’re in love, you’ll waltz,
To waltz is but a dream,
For there’s a simple charm,
That holds you arm in arm,
A pair of smiling eyes,
That love and sympathize,
You’ll laugh and you’ll forget your faults
If you’re in love, you’ll waltz,
Nothing more alluring,
Nothing so assuring,
Held in grip divine,
Like a sip of wine,
Moments so entrancing,
You’re in clouds above,
You won’t know you’re dancing
It’s a waltz of love,
While heart to heart we’ll tell life’s sweetest story,
If you’re in love, you’ll waltz,
To waltz is but a dream
For there’s a simple charm,
That holds you arm in arm,
A pair of smiling eyes,
That love and sympathize,
You’ll laugh and you’ll forget your faults
