Can't Get Out of This Mood
Loesser, Jimmy McHugh
Recording sessions
1959: New York
All day long before my eyes
Come little visions of you
They shouldn't they mustn't
But they do

Can't get out of this mood
Can't get over this feeling
Can't get out of this mood
Last night your lips were appealing
The thrill should have all gone by the day
In the usual way
But it's only your arms I'm out of

Can't get out of this dream
What a fool to dream of you
‘t Wasn't part of my scheme
To sigh and tell you that I love you
But now I'm saying it I'm playing it dumb
Can't get out of this mood
Heartbreak here I come

I can't get over this feeling
Last night your lips were appealing
The thrill should have been all gone by the day
In the usual way
But it's only your arms I'm out of

What a fool to dream of you
To sigh and tell you that I love you
But now I'm playing it now
I'm playing it dumb
I can't get out of this mood
Heartbreak heartbreak here I come
