Originally composed as an instrumental following the traditional 32-bar format and first recorded for Garner's 1955 album Contrasts, the tune was later paired with lyrics by Johnny Burke and became the signature song of Johnny Mathis, appearing on his 1959 album Heavenly and reaching #12 on the U.S. Pop Singles chart later that year.
Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud, I can't understand I get misty, just holding your hand
Walk my way And a thousand violins begin to play Or it might be the sound of your hello That music I hear, I get misty the moment you're near
You can say that you're leading me on, But it's just what I want you to do Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost? That's why I'm following you
On my own, Would I wander through this wonderland alone? Never knowing my right foot from my left, My hat from my glove I'm too misty, and too much in love.
