It's sweet when the band is playing to hold you in my arms
But I haven't time for saying what I think of your charms
It's wonderful to be swaying to music of the dance
But I'd rather be obeying the music of romance
How I would love one hour with you
One hour of just being with you
Then I could say what I'm feeling
And concealing in my heart
Tonight when all our dancing is through
And moonbeams fall on roses and dew
Perhaps you may even say that you love me too
And let me stay one hour with you
TOBIN: How I would love one hour with you
CHEVALIER: I'm thinking of the same thing as you
TOBIN: Then why delay?
CHEVALIER: Just one reason
TOBIN: What's the reason?
CHEVALIER: It's my Wife!
RUGGLES: How I'd enjoy one hour with you
MacDONALD: You silly boy, just what would you do?
RUGGLES: Leave that to me
MacDONALD: Now I see what Champagne will do
RUGGLES: No, no, honestly, I'm tipsy for you
MacDONALD: How I would love one hour with you
CHEVALIER: I'm tired of this hullabaloo
MacDONALD: You used to say you like dancing
CHEVALIER: I love dancing, but with you
It's not so much the steps that you do
You're very touch can make me say 'Oooohh!'
MacDONALD: We'll have a chance for romance when the party's through
CHEVALIER: It's all a bore unless I'm with you
