ANNIVERSARY SONG
(Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin)

Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed!
We vowed our true love, though a word wasn't said.
The world was in bloom. there were stars in the skies,
Except for the few that were there in your eyes.

Dear, as I held you close in my arms,
Angels were singing a hymn to your charms.
Two hearts gently beating, murmuring low,
"Darling, I love you so."

The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn.
The sun shone anew, but the dance lingered on.
Could we but relive that sweet moment sublime,
We'd find that our love is unaltered by time.

As recorded by Al Jolson, 1946.
A popular source for parodies:
Oh how we danced on the night we were wed
I needed a wife like a hole in the head.
(Abe Burrows)

Oh how we danced on the night we were wed
We danced and we danced 'cause the room had no bed. RG
