Mad about the Boy - Ray Noble and His Orchestra/Helen Forrest/The Jackie Gleason Orchestra/Lena Horne/Dinah Washington/Anni-Frid Lyngstad/Cleo Laine/Marianne Faithfull

Mad about the Boy
Mad about the boy
I know it's stupid to be mad about the boy
I'm so ashamed of it 
But must admit the sleepless nights I've had
About the boy

On the silverscreen
He melts my foolish heart in every single scene
Although I'm quite aware that here 
And there are traces of the cad
About the boy

Lord knows I'm not a fool girl
I really shouldn't care
Lord knows I'm not a school girl
In the fury of her first affair

Will it ever cloy
This odd diversity of misery and joy
I'm feeling quite insane and young again 
And all because I'm mad about the boy

So if I could employ 
A little magic that will finally destroy
This dream that pains me and enchains me 
But I can't, because I'm mad,
I'm mad about the boy
