Love me tonight, now while I long for you. Love that in a day may be dying, that sorrow will never renew. The hours that we know measure our dream of delight. Sweetheart, before they go, love me, love me tonight.
From the operetta The Vagabond King (1925). Music by Rudolf Friml, lyrics by Brian Hooker and William H. Post.
