About Can’t Get Out Of This Mood
“Can’t Get Out Of This Mood” was written for the 1942 wartime musical, Seven Day’s Leave. This torch song was introduced in the movie by Ginny Simms, with the Freddy Martin Orchestra.


Can’t get out of this mood
Can’t get over this feeling
Can’t get out of this mood
Last night your lips were too appealing
The thrill should have been all gone by today
In the usual way
But its only your arms I’m out of
Can’t get out of this dream
What a fool to dream of you
‘Twasn’t part of my scheme
To sigh and tell you that I love you
But I’m saying it, I’m playing it dumb,
Can’t get out of this mood,
Heartbreak here I come.
