# A fine romance, my friend this is

0:00:060:00:11

# We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes

0:00:110:00:15

# But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes

0:00:170:00:21

# A fine romance, you won't nestle

0:00:220:00:27

# A fine romance, you won't wrestle

0:00:270:00:33

# I've never mussed the crease In your blue serge pants

0:00:330:00:37

# I never have the chance

0:00:370:00:39

# This is a fine romance

0:00:390:00:42

# A fine romance, my good fellow

0:00:430:00:49

# You take romance, I'll take jell-O

0:00:490:00:54

# You're calmer than the seals in the Arctic ocean

0:00:540:00:58

# As least they flap their fins to express emotions

0:01:000:01:04

# A fine romance with no quarrels

0:01:050:01:10

# With no insults and all morals

0:01:100:01:16

# You're just as hard to land as the Ile de France

0:01:160:01:20

# I never get the chance

0:01:200:01:22

# This is a fine romance

0:01:220:01:25

# A fine romance with no kisses

0:01:250:01:32

# A fine romance, my friend, this is

0:01:320:01:38

# True love should have the thrills that a healthy crime has

0:01:380:01:44

# We don't have half the thrills that the march of time has

0:01:440:01:50

# A fine romance with no clinches

0:01:500:01:57

# A fine romance with no pinches

0:01:570:02:03

# You never give the orchids I sent a glance

0:02:030:02:08

# No, you like cactus plants

0:02:080:02:11

# This is a fine romance. #

0:02:110:02:17

# I just got an invitation through the mail

0:02:250:02:29

"Your presence requested this evening

0:02:300:02:32

# It's formal, top hat white tie and tails

0:02:320:02:35

# Nothing now could take the wind out of my sails

0:02:350:02:39

# Because I'm invited to step out this evening

0:02:390:02:42

# In top hat, white tie and tails

0:02:420:02:44

# Oh, I'm puttin' on my top hat

0:02:440:02:48

# Tyin' up my white tie

0:02:490:02:51

# Brushing off my tails

0:02:510:02:54

# I'm dudeing up my shirt front

0:02:540:02:58

# Puttin' in the shirt studs

0:02:580:03:01

# Polishing my nails

0:03:010:03:03

# I'm stepping out, my dear

0:03:030:03:05

# To breathe an atmosphere that simply reeks with class

0:03:050:03:08

# And I trust that you'll excuse my dust when I step on the gas

0:03:100:03:14

# For I'll be there

0:03:160:03:18

# Puttin' down the top hat

0:03:180:03:21

# Mussin' up my white tie

0:03:210:03:23

# Dancin' in my tails. #

0:03:230:03:25

# Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom

0:04:020:04:04

# When the jungle shadows fall

0:04:040:04:07

# Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock

0:04:070:04:09

# As it stands against the wall

0:04:090:04:12

# Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops

0:04:120:04:16

# When the summer shower is through

0:04:160:04:18

# So a voice within me keeps repeating, you, you, you

0:04:180:04:24

# Night and day, you are the one

0:04:240:04:29

# Only you beneath the moon and under the sun

0:04:300:04:35

# Whether near to me or far

0:04:350:04:39

# It's no matter, darling where you are, I think of you

0:04:390:04:44

# Night and day

0:04:440:04:47

# Day and night, why is it so?

0:04:470:04:53

# That this longing for you follows wherever I go

0:04:530:05:00

# In the roaring traffic's boom

0:05:000:05:02

# In the silence of my lonely room

0:05:020:05:06

# I think of you

0:05:060:05:08

# Night and day

0:05:080:05:11

# Night and day

0:05:110:05:14

# Under the hide of me

0:05:140:05:17

# There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me

0:05:170:05:23

# And its torment won't be through

0:05:230:05:26

# Till you let me spend my life making love to you

0:05:260:05:30

# Day and night

0:05:300:05:32

# Night and day

0:05:320:05:34

# Please, teacher, teach me something

0:08:190:08:21

# Nice teacher, teach me something

0:08:210:08:24

# I'm as awkward as a camel

0:08:240:08:26

# That's not the worst

0:08:260:08:28

# My two feet haven't met yet

0:08:280:08:31

# But I'll be teacher's pet yet

0:08:310:08:34

# Cos I'm going to learn to dance or burst

0:08:340:08:38

# Nothing's impossible, I have found

0:08:410:08:43

# When my chin is on the ground

0:08:430:08:45

# I pick myself up, dust myself off

0:08:450:08:48

# Start all over again

0:08:480:08:50

# Don't lose your confidence if you slip

0:08:500:08:53

# Be grateful for a pleasant trip

0:08:530:08:55

# And pick yourself up dust yourself off

0:08:550:08:58

# Start all over again

0:08:580:09:00

# Work like a soul inspired

0:09:000:09:02

# Till the battle of the day is won

0:09:020:09:05

# You may be sick and tired

0:09:050:09:07

# But you'll be a man, my son

0:09:070:09:10

# Will you remember the famous men

0:09:100:09:12

# Who had to fall to rise again

0:09:120:09:14

# So take a deep breath

0:09:140:09:16

# Pick yourself up

0:09:170:09:18

# Dust yourself off

0:09:190:09:21

# Start all over again

0:09:220:09:24

# I'll get some self assurance if your endurance is great

0:09:250:09:29

# I'll learn by easy stages if you're courageous and wait

0:09:300:09:33

# To feel the strength I want to I must hang on to your hand

0:09:340:09:39

# Maybe by the time I'm 50

0:09:390:09:42

# I'll get up and do a nifty. #

0:09:420:09:46

I'll show you again. Now, remember, three steps to the left,

0:09:460:09:50

-three steps to the right.

-To the right.

0:09:500:09:52

And turn. One, two, three.

0:09:520:09:54

# Pick yourself up, dust yourself off Start all over again. #

0:10:010:10:06

# Heaven, I'm in heaven

0:10:060:10:12

# And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

0:10:120:10:18

# And I seem to find the happiness I seek

0:10:180:10:24

# When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

0:10:240:10:29

# Heaven

0:10:310:10:33

# I'm in heaven

0:10:330:10:36

# And the cares that hung around me through the week

0:10:360:10:42

# Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak

0:10:420:10:48

# When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

0:10:480:10:54

# Oh, I love to climb a mountain

0:10:540:10:57

# And to reach the highest peak

0:10:570:11:00

# But it doesn't thrill me half as much as dancing cheek to cheek

0:11:000:11:07

# Oh, I love to go out fishing

0:11:070:11:10

# In a river or a creek

0:11:100:11:12

# But I don't enjoy it half as much as dancing cheek to cheek

0:11:120:11:19

# Dance with me

0:11:190:11:22

# I want my arm about you

0:11:220:11:25

# That charm about you

0:11:250:11:28

# Will carry me through to

0:11:280:11:32

# Heaven, I'm in heaven

0:11:320:11:36

# And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak

0:11:380:11:44

# And I seem to find the happiness I seek

0:11:440:11:50

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

0:11:500:11:55

# The weather is frightening The thunder and lightening

0:14:550:14:57

# Seem to be having their way

0:14:570:15:00

# But as far as I'm concerned It's a lovely day

0:15:000:15:04

# The turn in the weather Will keep us together

0:15:060:15:09

# So I can honestly say

0:15:090:15:11

# That as far as I'm concerned It's a lovely day

0:15:110:15:16

# And everything's OK

0:15:160:15:19

# Isn't this a lovely day to be caught in the rain?

0:15:220:15:27

# You were going on your way Now you've got to remain

0:15:300:15:37

# Just as you were going Leaving me all at sea

0:15:380:15:46

# The cloud's broke

0:15:460:15:48

# They broke and, oh what a break for me

0:15:480:15:54

# I can see the sun up high Though we're caught in a storm

0:15:540:15:59

# I can see where you and I could be cosy and warm

0:16:020:16:09

# Let the rain pitter patter But it really doesn't matter

0:16:090:16:14

# If the skies are grey

0:16:140:16:18

# Long as I can be with you It's a lovely day. #

0:16:180:16:24

# Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note

0:16:240:16:28

# Though by tomorrow you're gone

0:16:280:16:31

# The song is ended but as the song writer wrote

0:16:310:16:35

# The melody lingers on

0:16:350:16:39

# They may take you from me

0:16:390:16:41

# I'll miss your fond caress

0:16:410:16:45

# But though they take you from me I'll still possess

0:16:450:16:52

# The way you wear your hat

0:16:520:16:57

# The way you sip your tea

0:16:570:17:01

# The memory of all that

0:17:010:17:06

# Oh, no, they can't take that away from me

0:17:060:17:10

# The way your smile just beams

0:17:100:17:14

# The way you sing off key

0:17:140:17:19

# The way you haunt my dreams

0:17:190:17:23

# No, no They can't take that away from me

0:17:230:17:29

# We may never, never meet again On the bumpy road to love

0:17:290:17:36

# But I'll always, always keep a memory of

0:17:360:17:42

# The way you hold your knife

0:17:420:17:47

# The way we danced till three

0:17:470:17:52

# The way you changed my life

0:17:520:17:56

# No, no They can't take that away from me

0:17:560:18:00

# No, they can't take that away from me. #

0:18:000:18:11

# As you listen to the band Don't you get a bubble?

0:18:190:18:23

# As you listen to them play Don't you get a glow?

0:18:240:18:28

# If you step out on the floor You'll forget your trouble

0:18:290:18:33

# If you go into your dance You'll forget your woe

0:18:340:18:38

# So, come, get together

0:18:380:18:43

# Let the dance floor feel your leather

0:18:430:18:45

# Step as lightly as a feather Let yourself go

0:18:450:18:49

# Come, hit the timber

0:18:500:18:53

0:20:020:20:07

Hey, Joe.

0:20:080:20:10

Yeah?

0:20:100:20:11

# It's quarter to three

0:20:110:20:14

# There's no-one in the place except you and me

0:20:140:20:18

# So, set 'em up, Joe

0:20:200:20:23

# I've got a little story you ought to know

0:20:230:20:28

# We're drinking, my friend to the end of a brief episode

0:20:290:20:36

# Make it one for my baby

0:20:380:20:41

# And one more for the road

0:20:410:20:44

# I got the routine

0:20:470:20:49

# So drop another nickel in the machine

0:20:490:20:54

# I'm feelin' so bad

0:20:550:20:58

# I wish you'd make the music dreamy and sad

0:20:580:21:03

# Could tell you a lot

0:21:040:21:06

But that's not in a gentleman's code

0:21:060:21:12

# Make it one for my baby

0:21:120:21:15

# And one more for the road

0:21:150:21:19

# You'd never know it

0:21:210:21:23

# But, buddy, I'm a kinda poet

0:21:230:21:26

# And I got a lotta things to say

0:21:260:21:30

# And when I'm gloomy

0:21:300:21:32

# You simply gotta listen to me

0:21:320:21:34

# Until it's talked away. #

0:21:340:21:38

# Some day when I'm awfully low

0:22:180:22:24

# And the world is cold

0:22:240:22:27

# I will feel a glow just thinking of you

0:22:270:22:33

# And the way you look tonight

0:22:330:22:38

# Oh, but you're lovely

0:22:400:22:45

# With your smile so warm

0:22:450:22:48

# And your cheeks so soft

0:22:480:22:51

# There is nothing for me but to love you

0:22:510:22:57

# Just the way you look tonight

0:22:570:23:02

# With each word your tenderness grows

0:23:060:23:11

# Tearing my fear apart

0:23:110:23:15

# And that laugh that wrinkles your nose

0:23:150:23:21

# Touches my foolish heart

0:23:210:23:26

# Lovely, never, never change

0:23:280:23:33

# Keep that breathless charm

0:23:330:23:36

# Won't you please arrange it cos I love you

0:23:360:23:43

# Just the way you look tonight

0:23:430:23:48

# Just the way you look tonight. #

0:23:520:24:01

# There may be trouble ahead

0:24:020:24:08

# But while there's moonlight

0:24:080:24:10

# And music and love and romance

0:24:100:24:16

# Let's face the music and dance

0:24:160:24:21

# Before the fiddlers have fled

0:24:220:24:27

# Before they ask us to pay the bill

0:24:270:24:32

# And while we still have the chance

0:24:320:24:39

# Let's face the music and dance

0:24:390:24:44

# Soon we'll be without the moon

0:24:440:24:50

# Humming a different tune

0:24:500:24:52

# And then

0:24:520:24:56

# There may be teardrops to shed

0:24:560:25:02

# So while there's moonlight and music

0:25:020:25:06

# And love and romance

0:25:060:25:10

# Let's face the music and dance

0:25:100:25:15

# Dance

0:25:150:25:17

# Let's face the music and dance. #

0:25:170:25:23

-# Me too, darling, we'll go places

-Lovely, never, never change

0:28:110:28:17

-# Goodbye, quarter

-Keep that breathless charm

0:28:170:28:21

-# Goodbye, aces

-Won't you please arrange it

0:28:210:28:24

-# Remember how my arms

-Cos I love you

0:28:240:28:27

-# Hold you when we dance

-Just the way you look

0:28:270:28:29

# But we're not going to dance

0:28:290:28:33

-# This is a fine romance

-Tonight. #
