Tonight You Belong to Me

I know you belong to somebody new
But tonight you belong to me
Although we’re apart your part of my heart
And tonight you belong to me

Way down by the stream
How sweet it would seem
Once more just to dream
By the silvery moonlight, my honey

I know with the dawn that you will be gone
But tonight you belong to me
Just to little old me
