polkadots and moonbeams lyrics – frank sinatra

writers: burke/van heusen
a country dance was being held in a garden
i felt a b*mp and heard an “oh, beg your pardon”
suddenly i saw – polka dots and moonbeams
all around a pug-nosed dream
the music started, and was i the perplexed one
i held my breathe, and said “may i have the next one?”
in my frightened arms – polka dots and moonbeams
sparkled on a pug-nosed dream
there were questions in the eyes of other dancers
as we floated over the floor
there were questions but my heart knew all the answers
and perhaps a few things more
now in a cottage, built of lilacs and laughter
i know the meaning, of the words: “ever after”
and i’ll always see polka dots and moonbeams
when i kiss my pug-nosed dream
