Body And Soul

Written by Johnny Green/Ed Heyman/Ed Sour/Frank Eyton

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 wronging
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 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

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
