Here am I with you, in a world of blue,
And we're danc - ing to the tan -go we loved when first we met.
While the mu - sic plays, we re - call the days,
When our love was a tune that we could - n't soon for - get.
As I kiss your cheek, we don't have to speak,
The vi - o - lins like a choir, ex - press the de - sire we used to know not long a - go.
So just hold me tight, in your arms to - night,
And this Blue Tan - go will be our thrill - ing mem - o - ry of love.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
