Summary
Sheet music cover illustration depicting men and women in evening attire in a lavishly decorated ballroom. Although no one is actually dancing, there is an aura of anticipation rather than the sense that the evening is ending. The bearded figure of Father Time hovers in a cloud above the title, pointing to a large clock with its hands at twelve.
