Lyrics THE NIGHT IS A VELVET COVER,
MY BED IS CARPET OF DEW,
AND I'M MEETING MY PHANTOM LOVER
IN A DREAMLAND RENDEZVOUS.

VAGABOND DREAMS...
STEAL INTO MY HEART
AND SPEAK TO ME
OF LOVE ONCE MORE,
THEN TAKE ME FAR
ON A DRIFTING STAR
TO SOME ROMANTIC SHORE.
FIND ME THE ONE...
THAT WONDERFUL ONE
WHO'LL WHISPER,
I AM YOURS FOREVER.
FILL THE NIGHT
WITH MUSIC DIPPED IN PERFUME
LIKE APRIL IN PARIS
OR MAYBE LOVE IN BLOOM,
FOR SOMEHOW I FEEL
I'LL FIND MY IDEAL
TONIGHT IN MY VAGABOND DREAMS.
