A great pre-Valentines Day sentiment.

Cole Porter’s “It’s Bad For Me,” recorded by The Roches in 1980.

Your words go through and through me
And leave me totally dazed
For they do such strange things to me
They nearly make me gloomy
For you, dear, are so clever
So obviously the top
I wish you’d go on forever –
I wish even more you’d stop

Oh, it’s bad for me
It’s bad for me
The knowledge that you’re going mad for me
I feel certain my friends would be glad for me
But it’s bad for me

It’s so good for me
So new for me
To see someone in such a stew for me
And when you say you’ll do all you could for me
It’s so good for me
It’s bad for me

I felt, ’til you whispered to me,
Completely left on the shelf
But since you started to woo me,
I’m just crazy about myself

It’s a boon for me
A break for me
To hear that your heart’s on the make for me
Yet no matter however appealing
I still have a feeling
It’s bad for me

It’s so sweet for me
It’s swell for me
To feel that you’re going through hell for me
Yet no matter however appealing
I still have a feeling
It’s bad for me
