Here I go again I hear those trumpets blow again All aglow again Taking a chance on love Here I slide again About to take that ride again Starry eyed again Taking a chance on love I thought that cards were a frame-up I never would try Now I'm taking that game up And the ace of hearts is high Things are mending now I see a rainbow blending now We'll have a happy ending now Taking a chance on love Here I slip again About to take that trip again I got that grip again Taking a chance on love Now I prove again That I can make life move again I'm in a groove again Taking a chance on love I walk around with a horseshoe In clover I lie And brother rabbit of course you Better kiss your foot good-bye On that ball again I'm riding for a fall again I'm gonna give my all again Taking a chance on love ************ TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE as recorded by Anne Shelton w Wally Stott & his Orchestra 1957 Here I go again, I hear those trumpets blow again, All aglow again, Takin' a chance on love. Here I slide again, About to take that ride again, Starry-eyed again, Takin' a chance on love. I thought that cards were a frame-up, I never never would try, Now I'm takin' that game up And the ace of hearts is high, high! Things are mending now, I see a rainbow blending now, We'll have our happy ending now, Takin' a chance on love I never dreamed in my slumbers, And bets, ooh, they were taboo! But now I'm playin' the numbers On a little green for two. Waitin' in again, I'm leadin' with my chin again! I'm startin' out to win again, Takin' a chance on love. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - November 2011) ************ TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE (Ethel Waters) (film soundtrack) from "Cabin In The Sky" 1943 film Ethel Waters with Eddie "Rochester" Anderson & Duke Ellington's Orchestra (scat) Oh, here I go again, I'm hearin' trumpets blow again, All aglow again, Takin' a chance on love. Here I slide again, About to take that ride again, Starry-eyed again, Takin' a chance on love. I thought the cards were a frame-up, And I never would try, But now I'm takin' the game up And the ace of hearts is high! Things are mendin' now, I see a rainbow blendin' now, We'll have a happy endin' now, Takin' a chance on love. Here I slip again, I'm gonna take that tip again, Got my grip again, Takin' a chance on love. And now I prove again That I can make life move again, It's in the groove again, Takin' a chance on love. I'm walkin' around with a horseshoe, And in clover I lie, Why, mister rabbit of course you Better kiss your foot goodbye! On the ball again, I'm ridin' for a fall again, I'm gonna give my all again' Takin' a chance on love. I'm feelin' fine again, That's why I rise and shine again! Lost my mind again, Takin' a chance on love. Here's where I sink again, I'm gettin' in the pink again! Headed for the brink again, Takin' a chance on love. This game I'm takin' a crack at Sure needs good luck with me! So I'm takin' a whack at Any black cat that I see! Boy, I'm whoop again, I'm in the swim and hooked again! This goose of mine is cooked again, Takin' a chance on love. (scat) Takin' a chance on love! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - December 2012)
