    Heaven… I’m in heaven,
    And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
    And I seem to find the happiness I seek,
    When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.
    Heaven… I’m in heaven,
    And the cares that hung around me through the week,
    Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak,
    When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

    Oh, I love to climb a mountain,
    And to reach the highest peak.
    But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
    As dancing cheek to cheek.

    Oh, I love to go out fishing
    In a river or a creek.
    But I don’t enjoy it half as much
    As dancing cheek to cheek.

    Dance with me! I want my arms about you.
    The charms about you
    Will carry me through to…

    Heaven… I’m in heaven,
    And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
    And I seem to find the happiness I seek,
    When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

    • That’s the one, Michel, and how fun it was to make Fred sing it when he was actually IN Heaven. 🙂

  2. Ahhhh, in heaven, Gene could dance with Audrey….
    On second reading, the poem is actually a bit more sulfurous than the usual Astaire imagery… 🙂
