Drunk with the feeling that the arms that possess you Really caress you too. You are too beautiful for one man alone, For one lucky fool to be with, When there are other men with eyes of their own To see with. Love cannot stand sharing, Not if one cares. You won't be comparing My every kiss with theirs. You know I care and I'll be faithful to you, Not through a sense of duty. You are too beautiful, And I am too drunk with beauty. Like all fools I believed What I wanted to believe, My foolish heart conceived What foolish hearts conceived. I thought I'd found a miracle, I thought that you'd adore me, But it was not a miracle, It was merely a mirage before me. You are too beautiful, my dear, to be true, And I am a too drunk with beauty. Drunk with the feeling that the arms that possess you Really caress you too. You are too beautiful for one man alone, For one lucky fool to be with, When there are other men with eyes of their own To see with. Love cannot stand sharing, Not if one cares. You won't be comparing My every kiss with theirs. You know I care and I'll be faithful to you, Not through a sense of duty. You are too beautiful, And I am too drunk with beauty. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2013) **************************** As recorded by FRANK SINATRA, 24th April 1946: You are too beautiful, my dear, to be true And I am a fool for beauty Fooled by a feeling because I had found you I could have bound you too You are too beautiful for one man alone For one lucky fool to be with When there are other men with eyes of their own To see with Love does not stand sharing Not if one cares Have you been comparing My every kiss with theirs If, on the other hand, I'm faithful to you It's not through a sense of duty You are too beautiful And I am a fool for beauty (Instrumental Break) If, on the other hand, I'm faithful to you It's not through a sense of duty You are too beautiful And I am a fool for beauty (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2017)
