You Call It Madness (But I Call It Love)Words & Music by Russ Columbo, Con Conrad, Gladys Dubois & Paul Gregory
Recorded by Nat King Cole, 1942*
B7 AM7 D9 I can't forget the night I met you, E7/9 A7 G#m7 C#7 That's all I'm thinking of; F#m7 Fdim(III) F#m7 And now you call it madness, B7 E A7 E B7 But I call it love. B7 AM7 D9 You made a promise to be faithful E7/9 A7 G#m7 C#7 By all the stars above; F#m7 Fdim(III) F#m7 And now you call it madness, E A7 E E7 I still call it love. Bridge: Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 E7 My heart is beating, it keeps on repeating A C#7 A For you constantly. G#m7 C#7 G#m7 C#7 You're all I'm needing, and so I'm pleading, F#m7 D9 B7 "Please come back to me!" B7 AM7 D9 You made a plaything out of romance! E7/9 A7 G#m7 C#7 What do you know of love? F#m7 Fdim(III) F#m7 That's why you call it madness, B7 E A7 E B7 But I call it love.
*If you haven't heard it, Diana Krall's version of this one on her 1995 Nat King Cole tribute album "All For You" is awesome - as is the whole CD.
