About You're Just in Love

"You're Just in Love" is a popular song by Irving Berlin. It was published in 1950 and was first performed by Ethel Merman and Russell Nype in Call Me Madam, a musical comedy that made its debut at the Imperial Theatre in New York City on October 12 that year. The show ran for 644 performances. Ethel Merman also later starred in the 1953 film version. Theatre lore has it that Berlin wrote the song one night after Call Me Madam was not doing well in tryouts. The second act of the show was lacking. "What I'd like to do is a song with the kid (Russell Nype)," Merman said. So, Berlin went to his room and later produced the counterpoint song. When Berlin played the song for Merman, she said, "We'll never get off the stage." Reportedly, Berlin played the song for Russell Nype first, but admonished him not to admit he did so because it would infuriate Merman. Several recorded versions made the charts in 1950-51: Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters with Mitchell Ayres' and His Orchestra, Rosemary Clooney and Guy Mitchell, and Ethel Merman and Dick Haymes.

I hear music and there's no one there
I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
All night long I'm walking on air
I wonder why, I wonder why

I keep tossing in my sleep at night
And I've lost my appetite
Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
Now twinkle in my eyes, I wonder why
I wonder why, I wonder why, why, why

(You don't need analyzing)
(It is not so surprising)
(That you feel very strange but nice)
(Your heart goes pitter patter)
(I know just what's the matter)
(Because I've been there once or twice)

(Put your head on my shoulder)
(You need someone who's older)
(A rub down with a velvet glove)
(There is nothing you can take)
(To relieve that pleasant ache)
(You're not sick, you're just in love)

I keep tossing in my sleep at night
And I've lost my appetite
Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
Now twinkle in my eyes, that twinkle in the sky
That twinkle in the eye, that twinkle in the sky
That twinkle in the eye, that twinkle in the sky
I wonder why, why, why
