Swanee, song (for Capital Revue, by various composers)
by Irving Berlin



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 (Swinging) cheek to cheek
Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill (Boot) 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
(Come on and) Dance with me
I want my arms around you
That (Those) charm about you
Will carry me through

(Right up) 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, out together dancing (Swinging)
Out together dancing cheek to cheek
