8-beat intro. Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Here am I with you, in a world of blue,
And we're dancing to the tango we loved when first we met.
While the music plays, we recall the days,
When our love was a tune that we couldn't soon forget.
As I kiss your cheek, we don't have to speak,
The violins like a choir, express the desire we used to know not long ago.
So just hold me tight, in your arms tonight,
And this Blue Tango will be our thrilling memory of love.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
