6-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
It was fascination, my Dear,
I was in a paradise when you were near,
I was all aglow,  More than you could know;
It was just a dream,  Now I see things more clearly,
It was fascination, that's true,
There I was entranced by the starlight and you,
Then you turned away, love, and oh, when you left me,
Fascination vanished too.
Listen to the Southern California Banjo Band perform the "Fascination" (mp3)
