I've Got A Crush On You
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

How glad the many millions
Of Annabelle's and Lilian's
Would be, to capture me
But you had such persistence
You wore down my resistance
I fell, and it was swell
I'm your big and brave and handsome Romeo
How I won you I shall never, never know
It's not that I'm attractive
But oh, my heart grew active
When you came into view

I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and nighttime, hear me sigh
I never had the least notion
That I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo, could you care
For a lovely cottage that, do you wanna meet Monday to pick up the forniture
The world will pardon my mush
'Cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you

Could you coo, there you go again, could you care, now wait a minute
For a lovely cottage that we could share




The world will pardon my mush
But I have got a crush, my baby, on you, oh yeah

How glad the many millions of Annabelles and Lillians
Would be to capture me
But you had such persistence, you wore down my resistance
I fell and it was swell

I'm your big and brave and handsome romeo
How I won you I shall never never know
It's not that youre attractive
But, oh, my heart grew active
When you came into view

Ive got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and night-time give me sigh
I never had the least notion that
I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo, could you care
For a cunning cottage we could share
The world will pardon my mush
Cause I have got a crush on you

Could you coo, could you care
For a cunning cottage
That we could share
The world will pardon my mush
Cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you

Leave it to Gershwin to roast you in the middle of a love song

@bloggerccc

Frank changed "you're" to "I'm" on the 1960 version. He didn't like it, either.
