A Precious Little Thing Called Love


This first cut on Volume 6 is from the film "A Shopworn Angel" starring Gary Cooper
and Nancy Caroll.  It is listed as the theme song.  Annette does a little scat singing in the
second verse to liven up the song a bit.  The link to the song will take you to the
jazzpromo.com site.  It will provide about a minute and a half sample to listen to.

Why does my heart miss a beat?
at some footsteps on the street
its a precious little thing called love
Why am I content alone
when I know someone will phone
its a precious little thing called love
I see a day in June
a wedding tune
a honeymoon cruise
friends I know
who will through
rice and old shoes
but the one thing makes me say
heavens just across the way
It's a precious little thing called love

I was on my way to Dr. Cupid
I was all upset I was in doubt
Suddenly I laughed with glee
there was nothing wrong with me
for I guessed what it was all about
Oh, no,no,no
Oh, no,no,no
Do-do-do-do-do
That precious thing called love
It's so hard to concentrate
I don't even know the date
its a precious little thing called love

I see a day in June
a wedding tune
a honeymoon cruise
friends that I know
who will then throw rice and old shoes
The one thing that makes me say
heaven's just across the way
It's that precious little thing called love

That's All!
