About My Heart Tells Me
This ballad was written for the 1943 movie Sweet Rosie O’Grady, which starred Betty Grable. In fact, Grable introduced the song while sitting in bathtub filled with bubbles as part of a performance in a somewhat naughty beer hall show. The song has been widely recorded by artists including Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Harry James, Glenn Miller, Dorothy Collins and Charlie Parker.

Lyrics

Sometimes I feel so very certain that you care
There are times I feel we don’t belong
The more I fall for you, the more I must beware
So how am I to know if I am right or wrong

My heart tells me this is just a fling
And yet you say our love means everything
Do you mean what you are saying
Or is this a little game you’re playing?

My heart tells me I will cry again
Lips that kiss like yours could lie again
If I’m fool enough to see this through, will I
Be sorry if I do? Should I believe my heart or you?

My heart tells me I will cry again
Lips that kiss like yours could lie again
If I’m fool enough to see this through, will I
Be sorry if I do? Should I believe my heart or you?
