My Foolish Heart

Words & Music by Ned Washington & Victor Young
Recorded by Mel Torme, 1985

     A               F#m
The night is like a lovely tune -- 

   D9              E7
Beware my foolish heart!

    AM7            F#m
How white the ever constant moon -- 

      D9               E7
Take care, my foolish heart!

 D9        A          C#m7-5         F#m    Gdim
There's a line between love and fascination,

               D            DM7           D6   Fdim                 
That's hard to see on an evening such as this;

         F#m           C#7         F#m7
For they both hold the very same sensation.

Fdim         D9         Bm7-5       E7
When you're lost in the magic of a kiss.

A                      F#m
Her lips are much too close to mine -- 

   D9              E7
Beware my foolish heart!

    AM7              F#m
And should our eager lips combine, 

     D9           A7/6
Then let the fire start.

Fdim F#m          C#7       F#m7     Dm6                  
For  this time it isn't fascination, 

      A              AM7     C#m7-5  F#7
Or a dream that will fade and fall  apart.

      D        B7          D9      Bm7-5  E7    A    AM7/6
It's love this time, it's love, my fool - ish heart!
