Chorus:
When you are in love,
It's the love - li - est night of the year,
Stars twin - kle a - bove,
And you al - most can touch them from here.
Words fall in - to rhyme,
An - y time you are hold - ing me near.
When you are in love,
It's the love - li - est night of the year.
 
Bridge:
Waltz - ing a - long in the blue,
Like a breeze drift - ing ov - er the sand,
Thrilled by the won - der of you,
And the won - der - ful touch of your hand,
 
Ending:
And my heart starts to beat,
Like a child when a birth - day is near,
So, kiss me my sweet,
It's the love - li - est night of the year.
