I Wish I Were In Love Again

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Fitzgerald

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 conversation – 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 punched – drunk

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

The furtive sigh – the blackened eye
The words: “I love you – ’til the day I day”
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-crossing – of a pair of heals
I wish I were in love again

No, no more care – no, no despair
Now I’m all there (now) – but I’d rather be puncdrunk

Believe me sir – I much prefer
The classic battle – of a him and her
I don’t like quiet – and I wish I were
