Frank Sinatra w Tommy Dorsey & his Orch
rec Jan 20th 1941 New York
Tried to impress you,
My love I gave it all
Each hour every day at your beck and call;
Tried to caress you,
My soul filled with desire,
Two arms craving the one I admire.
Your charm was so appealing,
I loved you from the start;
There's still that same old feeling,
concealed here in my heart.
I tried making you love me
And you couldn't decide,
But I'll never regret
That I tried and tried and tried!
