"Sentimental and Melancholy" as written by Johnny Mercer and Richard Whiting....
The swift moving years
Have altered my tears
To only a sweet regret,
But somehow the spell that we captured
Lingers around me yet.
It's as easy for me to remember
As it is for you to forget.

Sentimental and melancholy
Whenever I think about you,
It's only a mood,
A brief interlude
That's better described as just feelin' blue.

I suppose that it's just my folly
To keep it alive as I do,
But it's a kind of sugar-coated misery,
And foolish as it seems I sorta like to be
Sentimental and melancholy,
Whenever I think about you.

I suppose that it's just my folly
To keep it alive as I do,
But it's a kind of sugar-coated misery,
And foolish as it seems I sorta like to be
Sentimental and melancholy,
Whenever I think about you.
