Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald - Cheek to cheek
Tekst en muziek: Irving Berlin
(1956)







Heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek



Yes heaven, I’m in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek



Oh, I’d love to climb a mountain
Reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh, I’d love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek



Now mama, dance with me
I want my arms about you
The charms about you
Will carry me through



Yes heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek
“Take it Ella, swing it”



Heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek



Heaven, I’m in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek



Oh, I’d love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh, I’d love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek



Come on and dance with me
I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through



To heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek



Yes, dance with me
I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through



To heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together, dancing cheek to cheek
Cheek to cheek, cheek to cheek, cheek to cheek
