Misty - Song Lyrics

  • Written in 1954, music by Erroll Garner and lyrics by Johnny Burke
  • Originally recorded by the Erroll Garner trio
  • Remade by Johnny Mathis in 1959
  • His version hit # 12 on the Top 40 charts
  • Used in the 1971 Movie "Play Misty For Me" directed by Clint Eastwood
  • It is considered one of the all time great "Standards", having been recorded by over a hundred different artists over the course of the last 50 years

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree,
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud, I can't understand,
I get misty, just holding your hand.

Walk my way, and a thousand violins begin to play,
Or it might be the sound of your hello, that music I hear,
I get misty, the moment you're near.

You can say that you're leading me on,
But it's just what I want you to do,
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost,
That's why I'm following you.

On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone,
Never knowing my right foot from my left, my hat from my glove,
I'm too misty, and too much in love.
I'm too misty, and too much in love.
