I hear singing and there's no one there
I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
All day long I seem to walk on air
I wonder why, I wonder why

I keep tossing in my sleep at night
And, what's more, I've lost my appetite
Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
Are twinkling in my eyes; I wonder 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 hear singing and there's no one there
You don't need analyzing; it is not so surprising
I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
That you feel very strange but nice
All day long I seem to walk on air
Your heart goes pitter-patter; I know just what's the matter
I wonder why, I wonder why
Because I've been there once or twice

I keep tossing in my sleep at night
Put your head on my shoulder; you need someone who's older
And, what's more, I've lost my appetite
A rub down with a velvet glove
Stars that used to twinkle in the skies
There is nothing you can take
Are you twinkling in my eyes
To relieve that pleasant ache
I wonder why
You're not sick; you're just in love
