A Sentimental Date with Perry Como
 
Body and Soul
 
My heart is sad an' lonely 
for you I sigh, for you dear only,
why haven't you seen it? 
I'm all for you, body an' soul!
 
I spent my days in longing 
and wondering why it's me you're wronging?
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you, body an' soul!
 
I can't believe it, it's hard to concede it 
that you turn away romance
are you pretending, it looks like the ending 
unless I could have one more chance 
to prove dear . . .
 
My life a wreck you're making 
you know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you 
body an' soul!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
My life a wreck you're making 
you know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you 
body an' soul!
