​I Am In Love

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Cole Porter Songbook (1956) and on the box set The Complete Ella Fitzgerald Song Books (1956).

I am dejected. I am depressed.
Yet resurrected and sailing the crest.
Why this elation, mixed with deflation?
What explanation? I am in love.

Such conflicting questions rise
Around in my brain: Should I order cynanide
Or order champagne?

Oh, what is this sudden jolt?
I feel like a frightened colt,
Just hit by a thunderbolt. I am in love.

I knew the odds were against me before,
I had no flair for flaming desire,
But since the gods gave me you to adore,
I may lose but I refuse to fight the fire,

So come and enlighten my days and never depart.
You only can brighten the blaze that burns in my heart,
For I am wildly in love with you,
And so in need of a stampede of love.

You only can brighten the blaze that burns in my heart,
For I am wildly in love with you,
And so in need of a stampede of love,
And so in need of a stampede of love.
