Verse:
Think of us to -geth -er on a night like this, The scent of sweet mag -nol -ia in the air.
Shall we ev -er see an -oth -er sight like this? With Lou' -si -an -a ma -gic ev' -ry where.
 
Chorus:
The dew is hang -ing dia -monds on the clo -ver, The moon is list' -n'ing to the night -in -gale.
And while we're lost in dreams, The world a -round us seems like a Lou' -si -an -a Fair -y Tale.
The breeze is soft -ly sing -ing thru the wil -lows, As hand in hand we stroll a -long the trail.
And love is at its height, en -chant -ing us to -night, Like a Lou' -si -an -a Fair -y Tale.
Is it real, this fas -ci -na -tion? Are my arms hold -ing you fast?
Are we here, on a plan -ta -tion, or can this be hea -ven at last?
Keep dream -ing with your head up -on my shoul -der, And don't a -wake un -til the stars grow pale.
The world is at our feet, the pict -ure is com -plete, Like a Lou' -si -an -a Fair -y Tale.
