Verse:
Jeal - ous - y,  Night and day you tor - ture me,
I some -times won - der,  If this spell that I'm un - der,
Can on - ly be a mel - o - dy,  For I know no one but me,
Has won your heart but,  When the mus - ic starts,
My peace de - parts.  From the mo - ment they lan - guor - ous strain,
And we sur - ren - der to all its charm once a - gain,
This jeal - ous - y,  That tor - tures me,
Is ec - sta - cy,  Mys - ter - y,  Pain!
 
Chorus:
We dance to a tan - go of love,
Your heart beats with mine as we sway.
Your eyes give the ans - wer I'm dreaming of,
That soft word your cruel lips will nev - er say.
I fear that the mus - ic will end,
And shat - ter the spell it may lend.
To make me be - lieve, When your eyes just de - ceive,
And it's on - ly the tan - go to you love.
