MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH
Irving Berlin 1933
Jeri Southern rec 1958
Fred Astaire w Leo Reisman & his Orch '33
Nat "King" Cole '58
Peggy Lee w Quincy Jones & his Orch '61
Maybe it's because I love you too much,
Maybe that is why you love me so little!
Maybe when I answered "Yes!",
Maybe I became a bore;
Maybe if I love you less,
Maybe you would love me more!
Maybe it's because I kissed you too much,
Maybe that is why my kiss means so little;
Maybe with a love so great and a love so small,
Maybe I'll be left with no love at all!
