I Concentrate on You

Lyrics ,Music:Cole Porter

The song was publishe 1940.

The film Broadway Melody of 1940 introduced
“I Concentrate on You” which was sung by Douglas McPhail.
In his book The Song Is Ended: Songwriters and American Music,
1900-1950, William G. Hyland says,
“The song] had an exotic flavor
and in the film was used as a ballet for Eleanor Powell,
dancing on a darkened stage with only a spotlight on her,
while the melody was sung by a masked harlequin;
then she is joined by Fred Astaire for the remainder of the number.”

Broadway Melody of 1940 

Whenever skies look gray to me
And trouble begins to brew
Whenever the winter winds become too strong
I concentrate on you

When fortune cries "Nay, nay" to me
People declare "You're through"
Whenever the blues become my only songs
Concentrate on you

On your smile, so sweet, so tender
When at first my kiss you do decline
On the light in your eyes when you surrender
And once again our arms intertwine

And so when wise men say to me
That love's young dream never comes true
To prove that even the wise men can be wrong
I concentrate on you
