Lena Horne

Lena Mary Calhoun Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010) was an American singer, actress, civil rights activist and dancer. more »

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, those polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled round a pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we crowded 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 lilac and laughter
I know the meaning of the words 'ever after'
And I'll always see those polka dots and moonbeams 
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we crowded 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 lilac and laughter
I know the meaning of the words 'ever after'
And I'll always see those polka dots and moonbeams 
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream

When I kiss my pug-nosed dream
