About a Quarter to Nine

 


 


 

      ONE, TWO, THREE!

 

      The stars

      Are gonna twinkle and shine
      This evenin’

      ‘bout a quarter to nine.

     

      My lovin’ arms
      Are gonna tenderly twine
      This evenin’ around you

      Quarter to nine.

 

      I know I won’t be late
      ‘cause at half past eight

      I’ll be waitin’ there

      I’ll be waitin’ where the lane begins

      Waitin’ for you on needles and pins.

 

      And then …

      The world is gonna be mine
      This evenin’

      ‘bout a quarter to nine.

 

      Get it!

      Ahhh, Ah …

      Oh!

 

      Oh, the stars

      Are gonna twinkle and shine

      This very evenin’

      ‘bout a quarter to nine.
     

      Both these lovin’ arms

      Are gonna tenderly twine

      All around you

      ‘round a quarter to nine.  

 
      I know I won’t be late
   

      ‘cause at half-past eight

      I will hurry there
      I’m gonna be waitin’ where the lane begins

      Waitin’ on you on needles and pins.

 

      And then …

      This world is gonna be mine

      This evenin’

      ‘bout a quarter to nine!
     

      Thank you …
