Recording sessions
1960: Location unknown
If only for tonight
If only for tonight

Pretend that you are mine again
Let kisses flow like wine again
Make every moment sweet delight
If only for tonight

Let's dance up that café again
Romance the night away again
Two violins and candlelight
If only for tonight

Go if you must but just for a little while
Give me those lips that I hunger for
If only for tonight my love
We cling ever so tight my love

My heart tells me one magic night
May lead to many more
If only you'll be mine
If only for tonight

My heart tells me one magic night
May lead to many more
If only you'll be mine
If only for tonight
