(vocal: The Singing Waiters) - 1958 There's the nicest little club house down my way Where sweethearts stray at close of day They gather 'round the piano singing pretty songs Just to pass the time away I stand outside the window listening to their harmony And this refrain rings in my memory Adair, my sweet Adair, I dare you to be mine I swear, each night declare I'll win your heart, your love divine I'm saving up my kisses and I've surely saved a few I'm waiting for the time when I can give them all to you Adair, my sweet Adair, I dare you, double dare you to be mine Seems like in my dreams I hear that melody It follows me just like a plea From olden golden days when two hearts beat as one We were happy constantly I still stand by the window, though I know it is in vain Recalling days brought back by that refrain Adair, my sweet Adair, I dare you to be mine I swear each night declare I'll win your heart, your love divine I'm saving up my kisses and I've surely saved a few I'm waiting for the time when I can give them all to you Adair, my sweet Adair, I dare you, double dare you to be mine ******************** As recorded by JAMES F.
