This song is a cover of "Begin The Beguine" by Cole Porter.
When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory evergreen

I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore, an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine

To live it again is past all endeavor
Except when that tune touches my heart
And darling, there we are, swearing to love forever
And promising never, never to part

What moments divine, what rapture serene
Two clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted
I know but too well what they mean

So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine

Oh no, let them begin the beguine, make them play
'Til the stars that were there before return above you,
Until you whisper to me once more, "Darling, I love you"
And we suddenly know what heaven we're in
When they begin the beguine

Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
Until the stars that were there before return above you
Until you whisper to me once more, "Darling, I love you"
And we suddenly know what heaven we're in
When they begin the beguine

And we suddenly know what heaven we're in
When they begin the beguine
