The Greatest White Tap Dance Segment, Jonathan Papelbon's Next Routine With Kevin Youkilis

From the Broadway Melody of 1940, Begin The Beguine, Words and Music, Cole Porter
When they begin the beguine
it brings back the sound of music so tender
it brings back a night of tropical splendor
it brings back a memory of green
I'm with you once more under the stars
and down by the shore an orchestras playing
and even the palms seem to be swaying
when they begin the beguine
to live it again is past all endeavor
except when that tune clutches my heart
and there we are swearing to love forever
and promising never never to part
a moment divine what rapture serene
two clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
and now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted
I know but too well what they mean
so don't let them begin the beguine
let the love that was once a fire remain an ember
let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
when they begin the beguine
oh yes let them begin the beguine
make them play til the stars that were there before
return above you
till you whisper to me once more darling I love you
and we suddenly know what heaven we're in
when they begin the beguine
