Falling In Love With Love
The Boys From Syracuse, (1938)
Lorenz Hart (w), Richard Rodgers (m)
VERSE
I weave with brightly colored strings
To keep my mind off other things;
So, ladies, let your fingers dance,
And keep your hands out of romance.
Lovely witches,
Let the stitches
Keep your fingers under control.
Cut the thread, but leave
The whole heart whole.
Merry maids can sew and sleep;
wives can only sew and weep!
REFRAIN
Falling in love with love
Is falling for make believe.
Falling in love with love
Is playing the fool.
Caring too much in such
A juvenile fancy.
Learning to trust is just
For children in school.
I fell in love with love
One night when the moon was full.
I was unwise, with eyes
Unable to see.
I fell in love with love,
With love everlasting,
But love fell out with me.
