Words by Arthur Freed and Music by Harry Warren

This version did not chart but
It was a #22 hit for Judy Garland in 1945
Introduced by Fred Astaire in the film "Ziegfield Follies", which also starred William Powell, Judy
Garland, Lucille Ball, Fanny Brice, Lena Horne, Red Skelton, Gene Kelly, and Cyd
Charisse


INTRO:
Maybe it was the music or that heavenly sky of blue
Maybe it was the mood I was in or maybe it was really you
Really you


This heart of mine was doing very well
The world was fine as far as I could tell
And then quite suddenly I met you and I dreamed of gay amours
At dawn I woke up singing sentimental overtures

This heart of mine is gaily dancing now
I taste the wine of real romancing now
Somehow this crazy world has taken on a wonderful design
As long as life endures it's yours, this heart of mine



This heart of mine is gaily dancing now
I taste the wine of real romancing now
Somehow this crazy world has taken on a wonderful design
As long as life endures it's yours, this heart of mine

As long as life endures it's yours, this heart of mine
This heart of mine, this heart of mine

SCAT: Doodley-doodle-doo-ahh
