Ev'ry show must have a song
Most ev'ryone agrees
For what else could the ingenue
And the juvenile reprise

And so I wrote a random note
A harmony or two

A stairway to a star
A night in Shangri-La of ecstasy

While I dance with you

An echo in the wind
Across the summer lake
Is saying you should know
That lanterns lose their glow
And hearts can break

So hold me close my darling
Then kiss me tenderly
And give your precious love
Your very precious love to me
