MY APRIL HEART
(Wallington / Goodman)
as recorded by Chris Connor
with orchestra conducted by Ralph Burns
My April heart, be wise,
You must beware of spring,
For love will blind your eyes
And you won't learn to sing!
Don't be jealous and forget the rules,
For springtime madness wasn't meant for fools!
And just remember that each shower cools
The flame again!
My April heart, take care,
For you are tender still,
And love may be unfair,
As poets say it will!
But love can be strong and free, and yet not be untrue;
My April heart, I pray it comes to you!
