Savoy the home of sweet romance
Savoy it wins you with a glance
Savoy gives happy feet a chance to dance
Your old form just like a clinging vine
Your lips so warm and sweet as wine
Your cheek so soft and close to mine divine

How my heart is singing while the band is swinging
I'm never tired of romping and stomping
With you at the Savoy
What joy a perfect holiday
Savoy where we can glide and sway
Savoy let me stomp away with you

The home of sweet romance
It wins you with a glance
Gives happy feet a chance to dance to dance
Just like a clinging vine
So soft and sweet as wine
So soft and close to mine divine

How my heart is singing while the band is swinging
I'm never never never tired of romping and stomping
With you at the Savoy
What joy a perfect holiday
Savoy where we can glide and sway
Savoy let me stomp away with you
