Polka Dots and Moonbeams                     Johnny Burke and Jimmy Van Heusen, Frank Sinatra

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 a-round 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.

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 the pug-nosed dream.
