shirley jones – being in love lyrics

Loading...

being in love used to be my fav’rite dream
oh, yes
i’ve been in love more than anybody else has
i guess
my first love heroic’ly ran the streetcar
i tingled at ev’ry clang clang
next i fell for the princ-p-l
but, oh that teacher who sang “in the gloamin’.”
knee-deep in love–what a lovely dream!
and yet, somehow
me deep in love’s only half of what i’m longing for now
i still love my being in love with someone
but tell me, why couldn’t there be
somebody being in love with me?
all i want is a plain man
all i want is a modest man

a quiet man, a gentle man
a straightforward and honest man
to sit with me in a cottage somewhere in the state of iowa…
and i would like him to be more interested in me
than he’s in himself and more interested in us than in me…
and if occasionally he’d ponder
what makes shakespeare and beethoven great
him i could love ’til i die
him i could love ’til i die!
being in love–what a lovely dream!
and yet, somehow
being in love’s only half of what i’m longing for now
and so then
tonight i’ll be in there dreaming
and hoping that someday there’ll be
just once!
somebody being in love with me…
