Body and Soul

Writer(s): John Green / Edward Heyman / Robert Sour / Frank Eyton
( with Buddy Hackett on trumpet)

(trumpet opens)
My heart is sad and lonely, for you I sigh, for you dear only.
Why haven’t you seen it, I’m all for you body and soul.
I spend my days in longin’, and wondering why it’s me you’re wrongin’,
I tell you I mean it, I’m all for you body and soul.
I can’t believe it, It’s hard to conceive it, that you’d turn away romance
Are you pretending, it looks like the ending
Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear
My life a wreck you’re making, you know I’m yours for just the taking

I’d gladly surrender myself to you body and soul.
(trumpet solo)
My life a wreck you’re making, you know I’m yours for just the taking
I would gladly surrender myself to you, body and soul
(trumpet to end
