[ Instrumental Prelude: ]

[ Verse 1:
Mu-sic and light / youth and de-light /
Dance with me now / ti-ill the day be born /
Plea-sure is ours / through the long sweet hours /
Till the last note / dies on the dawn / dies on the dawn / ]

[ Chorus: Time pas-ses by / ro-ses may die /
Life may be short and its joys be few /
Just for tonight all the world is bright /
Wi-ith the glamour of love with you /

Mu-sic and light / youth and de-light /
Dance with me now / ti-ill the day be born /
Plea-sure is ours / through the long sweet hours /
Till the last note / dies on the dawn / dies on the dawn! ]

[ Instrumental: ]

[ Verse 2:
Thoughts for the light / dreams for the night /
Le-ean to me / sing to me soft and low /
Look in my eyes / till our laugh-ter dies /
A-and your beau-ty is a-all I know / all you know / ]

[ Chorus ]

從英文翻譯成中文

音樂和燈光 / 青年和喜悅 /
現在和我一起跳舞 / 直到新的一天出生 /
快樂是我們的 / 度過漫長的甜美時間 /
直到最後一個音符消失在黎明 /

時間在流逝 / 玫瑰可能會凋零 /
壽命可能很短暫 / 它的歡樂可能很稀有 /
但是今晚整個世界是光明的
有愛情的魅力和你!

想到燈光 / 今晚的夢 /
傾身與我 / 向著我唱柔和輕聲的歌 /
看著我的眼睛 / 直到我們的笑聲消失 /
你的美麗是我所知道的一切!
