Falling in Love with Love

Lyrics:Lorenz Hart
Music:Richard Rodgers

The song was publishe 1938.

"The Boys from Syracuse" is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers
and lyrics by Lorenz Hart, based on William Shakespeare's play,
The Comedy of Errors, as adapted by librettist George Abbott.
The score includes swing and other contemporary rhythms of the 1930s.
The show was the first musical based on a Shakespeare play.
The Comedy of Errors was itself loosely based on a Roman play,
The Menaechmi, or the Twin Brothers, by Plautus.

The song was written for the show, where it was introduced by Muriel Angelus.
The musical premiered on Broadway in 1938.
The song is set to a waltz, but the lyrics "remind his listeners
of the show's skeptical tone".

I weave with brightly coloured strings
To keep my mind off other things;
So, ladies, let your fingers dance
And keep your hands out of romance.

Lovely witches
Let the stitches
Keep your fingers under control.

Cut the tread but leave
The whole heart whole.
Marry maids can sew and sleep;
Wives can only sew and weep!

Falling in love with love is falling for make-believe
Falling in love with love is playing the fool
Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy
Learning to trust is just for children in school

I fell in love with love one night when the moon was full
I was unwise with eyes unable to see
I fell in love with love; with love everlasting
But love fell out with me
