Sarah Vaughan

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud
I can' t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear

I get misty, the moment you're near
You can't see that you're leading me on?
But is just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost

That's why I'm following you
On my own
When I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left

My hat from my glove
I'm too misty, and too much in love
I'm just too misty
And too much
In love
