Peter Tinturin / Jack Lawrence

I try to keep  you out of my heart

But somehow I find

Trying to keep you out of my heart

I'm out of my mind

I tell myself "I'm through with you

And I'll having nothing more to do with you"

I stay away, but every day

I'm just foolin myself

Tell my friends that I don't care

I shrug my shoulders at the whole affair

But all know it is't so

I'm just foolin myself

And ev'ry time I pass

And see my face in a looking glass

I tip my hat and say

"How do you do, you fool

You're trowing your life away"

I'm acting gay

I'm acting proud

And every time I see you in a crowd

I may pretend

But in the end

I'm just foolin myself
