Lyrics:

List, love I am calling, Lolita, for thee,
Soft twilight is falling, Lolita come to me.
Bright above gleams the evening star,
Ah! Bright evening star!
Hark, from far tinkles the light guitar
Ah! The light guitar.
Come where the dancers are at the Alcazar.

All life doth seem a golden dream
When circled by your arm, my love, my one, my own.
When we’re dancing, gaily dancing,
To the music’s ‘trancing tone.
The mandolina’s trembling strain,
Doth weave a fairly charm, an airy, fairy charm,
And it seems in all the world there’s no one but we alone.

One just one, you are the only one.
I hold you close to my heart,
Oh, Lolita, I love you, I love you!
One just one, you are the only one,
And we shall never part not till life is done.

Ah, Ah, dance so light,
Ah, Ah, rare delight.
Joy is mine for tonight, tonight.

All life doth seem a golden dream,
When circled by your arm, my love, my one, my own.
When we’re dancing, gaily dancing.
To the music’s ‘trancing tone.
The mandolina’s trembling strain,
Doth weave a fairly charm, an airy, fairy charm.
And it seems in all the world there’s no one but we alone.

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah. Lolita , my own.
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Lolita, my own.
Fair Lolita you’re mine, alone!
