<trumpet opens>

 

My heart is sad and lonely

For you I sigh, for you, dear, only

Why haven't you seen it?

I'm all for you, body and soul

 

I spend my days in longin'

And wond'ring why it's me you're wrongin'

I tell you, I mean it

I'm all for you, body and soul

 

I can't believe it, it's hard to conceive it

That you'd turn away romance

Are you pretending? It looks like the ending

Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear

 

My life a wreck you're making

You know I'm yours for just the taking

I'd gladly surrender myself to you, body and soul

My life a wreck you're making

You know I'm yours for just the taking

I would gladly surrender myself to you, body and soul
