Nobody’s Heart Belongs To Me
|About Nobody’s Heart Belongs To Me|
|“Nobody’s Heart Belongs To Me” was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the musical By Jupiter in 1942. Directed by Joshua Logan, it starred Ray Bolger, Vera-Ellen and Constance Moore. It was their last full-length work. In American Popular Music, Alec Wilder called this song “one of the loveliest songs Rodgers or any other theater writer has ever written. In the area of this form of music it is a masterpiece.”|
Nobody’s heart belongs to me,
heigh-ho, who cares?
Nobody writes his songs to me,
no one belongs to me.
That’s the least of my cares.
I may be sad at times,
and disinclined to play,
but it’s not bad at times,
to go your own sweet way.
Nobody’s arms belongs to me,
no arms feel strong to me.
I admire the moon as a moon
just a moon
Nobody’s heart belongs to me today.
