Ella:
The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

Louis:
The evening breeze erased the trees tenderly
Trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we

Oh the shores were kissed by the mist tenderly
Ba-Bop Be-den
I can't forget how two hearts met tenderly
Ba-ba- Du-dut
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took took my chops, way from pops tenderly

Ba-bu tenderly
Tenderly
Oooh, oooh
Oooh, uuuh
Ba-bu Du-zu Ba-du-ba-zet oh yes
