Perry Como Sings Just For You - 1958
 
My One and Only Heart
 
My one and only heart,
My one and only heart,
You’ll never more be lonely,
My one and only heart!
 
I had five dollars from last week’s pay,
Some picture postcards from Santa Fe,
I saved all that but I gave away,
My one and only heart!
 
I met this angel in Joe’s Café,
The livin’ image of Salla Mae,
In no time even, I gave away,
My one and only heart!
 
My one and only heart,
My one and only heart,
You’ll never more be lonely,
My one and only heart!
 
I’ve got one lighter that’s off the beam,
A pawn shop ticket I can’t redeem,
I saved all that but I gave a dream,
My one and only heart!
 
My poor knees trembled,
My whole frame shook,
She had me flippin’ with just one look,
In one split second she went an’ took,
My one and only heart!
 
I’ve got two papers with last week’s news,
Some extra laces for last year’s shoes,
I saved all that but I had to lose,
My one and only heart!
 
Well I’m real grateful to Joe’s Café,
A blue-eyed plateful is sure OK,
And I’m not sorry I gave away,
My one and only heart!
 
You’ll never more be lonely,
My one and only, never lonely,
My one and only heart!
