Ever since the lucky night I found you
I've hung around you just like a fool
Falling head and heels in love like a kid out of school

My poor heart is in an awful state now
But it's too late now to call a halt

So if I become a nuisance it's all your fault

Don't blame me for falling in love with you
I'm under your spell but how can I help it
Don't blame me

Can't you see when you do the things you do!
If I can't conceal the thrill that I'm feeling
Don't blame me

I can't help it if that doggoned moon above
Makes me need someone like you to love!

Blame your kiss as sweet as a kiss can be
And blame all your charms that melt in my arms
But don't blame me

I like every single thing about you
Without a doubt you are like a dream
In my mind I find a picture of us as a team

Ever since the hour of our meeting
I've been repeating a silly phrase
Hoping that you'll understand me one of these days

Don't blame me for falling in love with you
I'm under your spell but how can I help it!
Don't blame me!

Can't you see when you do the things you do!
If I can't conceal the thrill that I'm feeling
Don't blame me

I can't help it if that doggoned moon above
Makes me need someone like you to love!

Blame your kiss as sweet as a kiss can be
And blame all your charms that melt in my arms
But don't blame me

Nat King Cole

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was a musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. He owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He was one of the first black Americans to host a television variety show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death. more »
