Polka Dots and Moonbeams

Music by Jimmy Van Heusen
Lyrics by Johnny Burke

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump 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 breath and said, “May I have the next one?”
In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug-nosed dream
