  • What is this thing called love,
    This funny thing called love?
    Just who can solve its mystery?
    Why should it make a fool of me?

    I saw you there one wonderful day.
    You took my heart and you threw it away.
    Now I ask the Lord in heaven above,
    "What is this thing called love?" Writer/s: Cole Porter
