My Foolish Heart (1949)
(w) Ned Washington (m) Victor Young (I) film My Foolish Heart by Martha Mears dubbing for Susan Hayward (P) Gordon Jenkins Orchestra, Sandy Evans, voc. (CR) Billy Eckstine
The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to see on an evening such as this.
For they both have the very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss.
His/her lips are much too close to mine,
Beware my foolish heart! But should our eager lips combine,
Then let the fire start for this time it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart.
It’s love, this time, it’s love, my foolish heart!
