  • Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed
    We vowed our true love, though a word wasn't said
    The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
    Except for the few that were there in your eyes

    Dear, as I held you close in my arms
    Angels were singing a hymn to your charms
    Two hearts gently beating, murmuring low
    "Darling, I love you so"

    The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn
    The sun shone anew but the dance lingered on
    Could we but recall that sweet moment sublime
    We'd find that our love is unaltered by time

    Darling, I love you so

    The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn
    The sun shone anew but the dance lingered on
    Could we but recall that sweet moment sublime
    We'd find that our love is unaltered by time Writer/s: AL JOLSON, SAUL CHAPLIN
