Never there to have your arms around me
Not that I considered it a sin
But tonight I want your arms around me
It’s the mood that I’m in

Can it be the music that they’re playing
Or the magic of the violin
That intrigues my heart into obeying
It’s the mood that I’m in

Maybe it’s the cocktails that I’m sipping
That helped to put me in this frame of mind
Maybe it’s because of you I’m slipping
Tonight I’m so romantically inclined

So speak to me of love with words so tender
Let the inaudible of life begin
I could give my heart in sweet surrender
It’s the mood that I’m in
