Lyrics[]

This is the night
It's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte

Look at the skies
They have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

So take the love of your loved one
You'll need it about this time
To keep from falling like a star
When you make that dizzy climb

For this is the night
And the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte
On this lovely bella notte

Tony:
Oh this is the night
It's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte

Look at the skies
They have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

Side by side with your loved one
You'll find enchantment here
The night will weave its magic spell
When the one you love is near

Both:
For this is the night
And the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte

Chorus:
This is the night
It's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte

Look at the skies
They have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

Side by side with your loved one
You'll find enchantment here
The night will weave its magic spell
When the one you love is near

For this is the night
And the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte

Carlos Ponce:
Oh, this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

So take this love of your loved one
You'll need it about this time
To keep from fallin' like a star
When you make that dizzy climb!

Oh, this is the night, and the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte!

Joy Enriquez:
Oh, this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

Side by side with your loved one
You'll find enchantment here
The night will weave its magic spell
When the one you love is near!

Oh, this is the night, and the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte!

On this lovely bella notte!

This is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte.

So take the love of your loved one,
You'll need it about this time.
To keep from falling like a star,
When you make that dizzy climb!

For this is the night, and the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte!

So take the love of your loved one,
You'll need it about this time.
To keep from falling like a star,
When you make that dizzy climb!
