As I gaze into your eyes tonight
and into that lovely smile
How easily  you do realize
I could stay here a long while

And I can never get enough
of those lovely lips of yours
 An eternal work of tender art
a pleasure that endures

As I see your flirty gaze
with those eyes that touched my heart
They just take complete control of me
right from the very start

So, now on this clear summer's eve
as I gaze up at the full night skies
I can see the twinkle of jealous stars
that can never match your eyes
