    ‘Begin the Beguine’ is a classic American jazz standard. Written in by Cole Porter while on a Pacific cruise, the song became truly popular when bandleader Artie Shaw adapted it to swing.

    Lyrics to 'Begin The Beguine' by Ella Fitzgerald: When they begin the beguine It brings back the sound of music so tender, It brings back a night of tropical splendor, It brings back a memory ever green. I'm with you once more under the stars.

    When they begin the beguine It brings back the sound of music so tender, It brings back a night of tropical splendor, It brings back a memory ever green. I'm with you once more under the stars, And down by the shore an orchestra's playing And even the palms seem to be swaying When they begin the beguine. To live it again is past all endeavor.

    "Begin The Beguine" is another brilliant collection from international singer Julio Iglesias. (Real Madrid's loss was the musical world's gain!!) Although all but 1 of the songs are sung in either Spanish or French, they are popular songs that you will recognise and the lack of English language will not spoil your enjoyment of these lovely /5().
