Romantic Nights

Romantic Nights

It matters not the setting,
Be there sparkling stars or rain,
Ginger ale in paper cups,
Or vintage French champagne.

We can don black tie and finery,
Or wear country western gear,
What makes a night romantic,
Is the fact that you are here!

We may waltz to violins,
Or jitterbug till feet are sore,
Or simply watch a late night movie,
It's time together we adore.

We love hot dogs at a ballpark,
Or gourmet fare in gay Paree,
Any spot can be romantic,
If it's part of you and me!
