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!

    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.

    I sang this in fifth grade for chorus, and while I was in band today, some kids stated playing it on piano, and I was singing along while my crush was sitting by me. He started to hug me while I was singing. I think this is the cutest song to sing to a crush ever!

    Like chicadilly, to me this song is about total love, but at some point in the relationship he got carried away and "went overboard" and made everything better by reminding her of the kiss she stole. They eventually got married and she "held all his heart and soul"!
    A beatiful song and story: D
