A kiss to build a dream on

Playing on the iPod is Louis Armstrong's throaty, rough and very warm voice singing A kiss to build a dream on from the 1935 musical The Strip.
Perfect for a very cold Saturday night when you're ready to be whisked away to some nice and warm moonlit paradise.

Give me a kiss to build a dream on,
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss.
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this:
A kiss to build a dream on.
Give me a kiss before you leave me,
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart.
Leave me one thing before we part,
A kiss to build a dream on.
When I'm alone with my fancies, I'll be with you,
Weaving romances, making believe they're true.
Give me your lips for just a moment,
And my imagination will make that moment live.
Give me what you alone can give,
A kiss to build a dream on.
