I Wish I Were In Love Again
Lorenz Hart (w), Richard Rodgers (m)
Babes In Arms, 1937
VERSE
You don't know that I felt good
When we up and parted.
You don't know I knocked on wood,
Gladly broken-hearted.
Worrying is through,
I sleep all night,
Appetite and health restored.
You don't know how muck I'm bored.
REFRAIN 1
The sleepless nights,
The daily fights,
The quick toboggan when you reach the heights--
I miss the kisses and I miss the bites.
I wish I were in love again!
The broken dates,
The endless waits,
The lovely loving and the hateful hates,
The conversations with the flying plates--
I wish I were in love again!
No more pain,
No more strain,
Now I'm sane but...
I would rather be gaga!
The pulled-out fur
Of cat and cur,
The fine mismating of a him and her--
I've learned my lesson, but I wish I were
In love again!
REFRAIN 2
The furtive sigh,
The blackened eye,
The words "I'll love you till the day I die,"
The self-deception that believes the lie--
I wish I were in love again.
When love congeals
It soon reveals
The faint aroma of performing seals,
The double-crossong ps a pair of heels.
I wish I were in love again!
No more care,
No despair.
I'm all there now,
But I'd rather be punch-drunk!
Believe me, sir,
I much prefer
The classic battle of a him and her.
I don't like quiet and I wish I were
In love again!
