‘Twas Mischief Night and the time was ripe
For the long-overdue rendezvous with you
Two crazy old friends contemplating romance
As a kinetic kind of pre-Halloweeny vibe grew

    We played a rhapsodic serenade
    Strolling with flair, like a professional Parisian pair
    And my heart turned somersaults
    When I played a waltz
    With you    (spoken: 1,2,3; 1,2,3)

‘Twas Mischief Night and the feeling was right
Yes, it hung like a dirigible in the air
So we occupied the loveseat outside
High from dizzyin’ heights, pondering an affair

    We played a nostalgic serenade
    Too looped to care that all the legends of bebop were there
    But my heart turned somersaults
    When I played a waltz
    With you    (spoken: play with me baby!)

‘Twas Mischief Night, when vampires bite
We declined, then reclined in your cozy crib
Some minutes went by ‘til we intertwined
In a steamy debut, a new polyrhythmic adlib

    We made an ecstatic serenade
    Breaking new ground, until you suddenly had to leave town
    I played ‘midst the Halloween parade
    Singin’ your tunes for the staggering zombies and goons
    I wait, as I do in all my tunes
    Wond’rin’ if you will reprise or pursue our sweet rendezvous
    ‘Cause my heart turned somersaults
    when I played a waltz
    With you

(spoken: Trick or treat!)
