Bewitched

Writer(s): Richard Rodgers / Lorenz Hart / arr. Nelson Riddle
(from the Album: Sinatra the Television Years-1957-1965)

She’s a fool and don’t I know it, but a fool can have her charms
I’m in love and don’t I show it like a babe in arms
Love’s the same old situation, lately I’ve not slept a wink
Since this crazy situation has me on the blink.

I’m wild again, beguiled again, a simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered – am I
Couldn’t sleep, wouldn’t sleep, then love came and told me I shouldn’t sleep
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered – am I
Lost my heart, but what of it? She is cold I agree
She might laugh, but I love it, although the laugh’s on me
I’ll sing to her, bring spring to her, and long for the day when I’ll cling to her
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered – am I
