BODY AND SOUL Johnny Green (m) Frank Eyton (l) Edward Heyman (l) Robert Sour (l) 1930 Paul Whiteman, Bert Ambrose, Jack Hylton and many others 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 (Contributed by Dave Johnson - March 2008) ****** as rec by Morgana King January 1956 New York I'm lost in the dark, Where is the spark of my love? I'm lost in the night, Holding the light of my love. The heavens opened, then cloud; That's when I might have supposed I'd lie and rest in the savannah, So far removed from all that I had planned on! My days have been so lonely, For I have lost my one and only; My pride has been humbled, But I am his, Body and soul! I was a mere sensation, My house of cards had no foundation; Although it has tumbled, I still am his, Body and soul! What lies before me? The future looks stormy, A Winter of grey alone. Unless there's magic, The end will be tragic, And ech a tale that's been told so often. My life revolves around him, What earthly good am I without him? My castles have crumbled, but I am his, Body and soul! My castles have crumbled, but I am his, Body and soul! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2011) ****** BODY AND SOUL (Sinatra Version) Recorded by Sinatra in NYC on April 13, 1984; Orchestra recorded in Hollywood on October 26, 2007 Arranger: Torrie Zito Music: Johnny Green Words: Edward Heyman, Robert Sour, & Frank Eyton My heart is sad and lonely for you I sigh.....just for you only why haven't you seen it? I'm all for you.....body and soul. I spend my days in longing and wonder why why it's me that you're wronging I tell you that I mean it I'm all for you.....body and soul. I can't believe it. It's hard to conceive it. That you would turn away romance. Are you pretending? Because 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.....just for the taking I would gladly surrender. Surrender myself to you.....body and soul. My life a wreck. You're making...you know I'm yours. I'm yours for just the taking. I would gladly surrender myself to you.....body and soul..... (Transcribed by Richard W. Mills - May 2012)
