8-beat intro. Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of F.
Your green eyes with their soft lights.  Your eyes that promise sweet nights.
Bring to my soul a longing, A thirst for love divine.
In dreams I seem to hold you.  To find you and enfold you.
Our lips meet and our hearts too.  With a thrill so sublime.
Those cool and limpid green eyes.  A pool where in my love lies,
So deep that in my searching, For happiness, I fear.
That they will ever haunt me.  All through my life they'll taunt me.
But will they ever want me, green eyes?   Make my dreams come true.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
