Billie Holiday - "Sentimental amp Melancholy" lyrics

Johnny mercer / richard whiting

Sentimental and melancholy

Whenever i think about you

It's only a mood,

Abrief interlude

That's better described as just feeling 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 thought i'd like to be

Sentimental and melancholy

Whenever i think about you
