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) ******************** As recorded by Frank Sinatra in NYC on April 13, 1984; 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) ******************** As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW: I'm lost in the dark Where is the spark for my love I'm lost in the night Holding the light of my love The heavens opened and closed As well I might have supposed And now I'm left in this abandon So far removed from all that I had planned on My days have grown 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 that's grey and old Unless there's magic, the end will be tragic And echo the tale that's been told so often My life revolved about him What earthly good am I without him My castles have crumbled But I am his, body and soul (Instrumental Break) My life revolved about him Lord knows I'm just no good without him My castles have crumbled But I am his, body and soul (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018) ******************** As recorded by ELSIE CARLISLE: You're making me blue All that you do seems unfair You try not to hear Turn a deaf ear to my prayer It seems you don't want to see What you are doing to me My arms are longing to caress you And to my heart they long to press you, sweetheart My heart is sad and lonely For you I cry, for you dear only I tell you I mean it I'm all for you, body and soul I spend my days in longing And wondering why it's me you're wronging Why haven't you seen 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, don't say it's the ending I wish I could have one more chance to prove, dear My life's a hell you're making You know I'm yours for just the taking I'd gladly surrender Myself to you, body and soul (Instrumental Break) My life's a hell you're making You know I'm yours for just the taking I'd gladly surrender Myself to you, body and soul Myself to you, body and soul (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018) ******************** As performed by LIBBY HOLMAN in the 1930 Broadway production "Three's A Crowd": Life's dreary for me Days seem to be long as years I look for the Sun But I see none through my tears Your heart must be like a stone To leave me here all alone When you could make my life worth living By simply taking what I'm set on giving My heart is sad and lonely For you I cry, for you dear only Why haven't you seen it I'm all for you, body and soul I spend my days in longing 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 No use pretending, it looks like the ending Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear My life a hell you're making You know I'm yours for just the taking I'd gladly surrender Myself to you, body and soul I'd gladly surrender Myself to you, body and soul (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018)
