Heart and soul, I fell in love with you,
Heart and soul, the way a fool would do,
Because you held me tight,
And stole a kiss in the night...

Heart and soul, I begged to be adored,
Lost control, and tumbled overboard,
That magic night we kissed,
There in the moon mist.

Oh! but your lips were thrilling, much too thrilling,
Never before were mine so strangely willing.

But now I see, what one embrace can do,
Look at me, it's got me loving you,
That little kiss you stole,
Held all my heart and soul.

    My husband was a musician and sang the lyracs to me as he played the piano before we were married. I didnt' realize it had these lyrics so it was a surprise and lovely to hear. He sat in with the band at our reception and had them all play it while he seranaded me. That was only 3.5 years ago, he passed away this past feb from cancer and of course many of the things i took for granted now mean more. Wish i could hear him sing it again!

    Heart and soul, is that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you think of them, when being close isn't enough, and when they tell you they miss you even if you have just left them, xo

    It's a great song to enjoy alone, or with family! It is a lively song that gets your toes tapping and hands clapping!

    This is a song about that first kiss and what it can do. I have loved this melody for over 50 years. If you enjoy playing this on the piano as i do then i suggest you find the original sheet music (key of f) and learn the middle section and the real ending. The origianl is beautiful, but i like the generic version too.
