Chorus:
We were waltz-ing to - geth - er,  to a dream - y mel - o - dy,
When they called out,  "Change Part - ners,"  And you waltzed a - way from me!
Now my arms feel so emp - ty,  as I gaze a - round the floor,
And I'll keep on "chang - ing part - ners,"  till I hold you once more!
Though we danced for one mo - ment and too soon we had to part,
In that won - der - ful mo - ment, some - thing hap - pened to my heart!
So I'll keep "chang - ing part - ners,"  till you're in my arms and then,
Oh! my dar - 1in',  I will nev - er change part - ners a - gain!
