Lyrics

This ol’ heart is like a puppy in Spring
Yeah, just like a playful puppy in Spring
When you flash your blue eyes at me
When you shake out your red hair
All my cares, they don’t mean a thing
They don’t mean a thing
No they don’t mean a thing
This Ol’ heart is like the morning sun
Yeah, just like the new-day rising sun
When we’re walking arm in arm
Your hot breath whis’pring in my ear
All my trials, darlin’, they’re all gone
Darlin, they’re all gone
My darlin’ they’re all gone
This ol’ heart is like a blazing fire
Yeah just like a red hot blazing fire
When we’re curled up close and warm
Your warm heart pounding in my ear
All my fears, those fears,
All my fears, those fears
All my fears, are banished by desire
Cornet solo
This ol’ heart is like a blazing fire
Yeah just like a red hot blazing fire
When we’re curled up close and warm
Your warm heart pounding in my ear
All my fears, those fears,
All my fears, those fears
All my fears, are banished by desire
All my fears, those fears,
All my fears, those fears
All my fears, are banished by desire
Banished by desire
