Phrasing, as sung by Brenda Lee

[Prelude, no longer sung:
Lovely interlude / most romantic mood /
and your attitude is right / dear /
Sweetheart / you have me under a spell /
Now my dream is real / that is why I feel /
such a strong appeal tonight /
Somehow / all my reason takes flight / dear /]

[Instrumental: Dum dum]

I’m in the mood for lo-o-ove /
sim-ply be-cause you’re near me /
Fun-ny but when you’re near me /
I’m in the mood / for love /

Hea-ven is in your e-e-eyes /
bright as the stars we’re un-der /
Oh is it a-ny won-der /
I’m in the mood / for love /

Why stop to think of whe-ther /
this lit-tle dream might fade /
We’ve put our hearts / to-ge-ther /
Now we are one / I’m not a-fraid /

If there’s a cloud a-bo-o-ove /
if it should rain / we’ll let it /
But / for to-night / for-get it /
I’m in the mood / for love /

[Why stop to think of whe-e-ther /
this lit-tle dream might fa-a-ade /]

We’ve put our hearts / to-ge-ther /
Now we are one / I’m not a-fraid /

If there’s a cloud a-bo-o-ove /
if it should rain / we’ll let it /
But for to-night / for-get it /
I’m in the mood / for love!
