You're Just In Love

Album: Call Me Madam (1950)
  • MALE VOICE:
    I hear singing and there's no one there
    I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
    All day long I seem to walk on air
    I wonder why, I wonder why

    I keep tossing in my sleep at night
    And what's more I've lost my appetite
    Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
    Are twinkling in my eyes, I wonder why

    FEMALE VOICE:
    You don't need analyzing
    It is not so surprising
    That you feel very strange but nice
    Your heart goes pitter patter
    I know just what's the matter
    Because I've been there once or twice

    Put your head on my shoulder
    You need someone who's older
    A rub down with a velvet glove
    There is nothing you can take
    To relieve that pleasant ache
    You're not sick, you're just in love
