What Is This Thing Called Love?

(Cole Porter – 1929)

I was a humdrum person
Leading a life apart
When love flew in through my window wide
And quickened my humdrum heart

What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?

I saw you there one wonderful day
You took my heart and threw it away
That’s why I ask the Lord in heaven above
What is this thing called love?
