​I Wish I Were In Love Again

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Rodgers & Hart Songbook (1956).

You don't know that I felt good
When we up and parted
You don't know I knocked on wood
Gladly broken-hearted

Worrying is through
I sleep all night
Appetite and health restored
You don't know how much I'm bored

The sleepless nights, the daily fights,
The quick toboggan when you reach the heights,
I miss the kisses, and I miss the bites,
I wish I were in love again.

The broken dates, the endless waits,
The lovely loving, and the hateful hates,
The conversations with the flying plates,
I wish I were in love again.

No more pain, no more strain,
Now I'm sane, but I would rather be gaga.

The pulled out fur of cat and cur,
The fine mismating of a him and her,
I've learned my lesson, but I wish I were
In love again.

The furtive sigh, the blackened eye,
The words: "I love you, 'til the day I die?,
The self deception that believes the lie,
I wish I were in love again.

When love congeals it soon reveals,
The faint aroma of performing seals,
The double-crossing of a pair of heels,
I wish I were in love again.

No more care, no despair,
I'm all there now, but I'd rather be punch-drunk.

Believe me sir, I much prefer,
The classic battle of a him and her,
I don't like quiet, and I wish I were,
In love again.
