Holdin' hands at midnight
Beneath a starry sky
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it if you try

Strollin' with the one girl
Sighin' sigh after sigh

Waiting at the cottage door
Where two hearts become one
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you
And then takin' that vow
Nice work if you can get it
And if you get it, won't you tell me how?

Holdin' hands at midnight
Beneath a starry sky

And strollin' with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh

Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door
Where two hearts become one
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you
And then takin' that vow
Nice work if you can get it
And if you get it, won't you tell me how?
