Also recorded by:
Last night as I was strolling by
There on the ground I found a velvet glove
Whose can it be, and where is she
Is she for me at all, and will I fall in love.
She must be lovely as the music of the night
She’s lovely in the moonlight glow
Fairer than the roses that she wears
And dainty as a cameo
There must be firelight dancing in her hair
And where she walks the air is rare delight
How I wish that I could be the one
To hold her in his arms tonight
Will she return to love and learn
That she’s the dream that I’ve been dreaming of
I just know this, she’ll understand
And let me kiss the hand that wore the velvet glove.
La-da-da-de-dum the velvet glove
La-da-da-de-dum the glove I love
I know just this, she’ll understand
And let me kiss each finger of the velvet glove.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5,…6….Egad!
