Lyrics (lyrics):

I FOUND AN OLD MUSTY BOOK,
LONG LOST
IN SOME FAR FORGOTTEN NOOK.
IN THE BOOK A FADED PICTURE,
AND THE SCENT OF FAINT PERFUME,
TWO OLD-FASHIONED LOVERS
IN AN EIGHTEENTH CENTURY DRAWING ROOM.

NOTHING IS EVER NEW,
EVER SINCE LOVE BEGAN,
SEE HER TWO EYES OF BLUE,
FLIRTING BEHIND HER FAN.
LOOK AT HIS SILK AND LACE,
ISN'T HE DEBONAIRE?
AND THE SMILE ON HIS FACE
TELLS OF THE LOVE THEY SHARE.

HEAR THEIR TWO HEARTS SOFTLY BEAT,
ONE MOMENT MORE
AND THEIR LIPS WILL MEET.
WHAT A SWEET AND CHARMING PICTURE,
LOVE IN GLORY, LOVE IN BLOOM,
DON'T YOU WISH THAT WE WERE
IN AN EIGHTEENTH CENTURY DRAWING ROOM.
