I took one look at you That's all I meant to do And then my heart stood still My feet could step and walk My lips could move and talk And yet my heart stood still Though not a single word was spoken I could tell you knew That unfelt clasp of hands Told me so well you knew I never lived at all Until the thrill of that moment When my heart stood still I took one look at you That's all I meant to do And then my heart stopped right there My feet could step and walk My lips could move and talk And yet my heart stood still Though not a single word was spoken I could tell you knew That unfelt claps of hands Told me so well you knew I never lived at all Until the thrill of that moment When my heart stood still (Contributed by bobandbettytaylor - August 2005) ************************ as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Buddy Bregman & his Orch Aug 30th 1956 Los Angeles Through all my school days I hated boys, Those April Fool days brought me loveless joys! I read my Plato, love I thought a sin, But since your kiss, I'm reading Missus Glynn! I took one look at you, That's all I meant to do, And then my heart stood still! My feet could step and walk, My lips could move and talk, And yet my heart stood still! Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew; That un-felt clasp of hands Told me so well you knew. I never lived at all until that thrill Of that moment when my heart stood still! Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew; That un-felt clasp of hands Told me so well you knew. I never lived at all until that thrill Of that moment when my heart stood still! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011) *********** as rec by Kathryn Grayson w The MGM Studio Orch cond by Georgie Stoll December 1947 Los Angeles I laughed at sweethearts I met at school, All indiscreet hearts Seemed romantic fools! A house in Iceland Was my heart's domain, I saw your eyes, Now castles rise in Spain! I took one look at you, That's all I meant to do, And then my heart stood still! My feet could move and walk, My lips could speak and talk, And yet my heart stood still! Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew; That un-felt clasp of hands Told me so well you knew. I never lived at all until the thrii Of that moment when my heart stood still! I never lived at all until the thrii Of that moment when my heart stood still! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011)
