Lyrics to - 1935 Cheek to Cheek - Video below

 

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 hang around me thro' the week

Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak

When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek.

 

Oh! I love to climb a mountain,

And to reach the highest peak,

But it doesn't thrill me half as much

As dancing cheek to cheek.

 

1930s--1930.jpgOh! 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.

 

Dance with me

I want my arm about you;

The charm about you

Will carry me thro' 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 cheek to cheek.

 

 

- I think I would like to have lived in the 1930s and worn beautiful bias cut dresses all the time.

 

 - Nanette Lepore
