Here you go: http://www.digitaltimes.com/karaoke/singers/heart_andsoul.htm

Heart And Soul
Heart and soul___I fell in love with you.
Heart and soul____The way a fool would do,
Mad - ly___be-cause you held me tight___
And stole a kiss in the night

Heart and soul____I begged to be a-dored,
Lost con-trol____And tum-bled ov-er-board,
Glad - ly______that mag-ic night we kissed____
There in the moon-mist.

Oh! but your lips were thrill - ing,
Nev-er be-fore were mine so strange-ly will-ing.
But now I see___What one embrace can do,
Look at me____It's got me lov-ing you, Mad - ly___

that lit-tle kiss you stole
Held all my Heart and soul._______


Circa 1938
By Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Loesser

Looking around for something else, I found another location:

http://www.volcano.net/~jackmearl/songs/hsongs/heart_and_soul.html

This was a HARMONICA chord and lyric site. It seems to include a few lines before the words in the other site.

Sigh.   

This is the pound-'em-out piano party piece to end them all.
It is such a cliché that it is capable of clearing the room if anybody starts in on those clunky arpeggios and chords.

And now there is a pop tune at the top of the heavy-rotation radio playlists.
It takes that chorus and changes the words to
Play that Song
--the one that makes me go All Night Long
--the one that makes me think ooooooooooof yooooooooooou.....
that's all you gotta doooooooooo.

I could SCREAM when the radio broadcasts it. Oh the torment.

I gotta say, I've always been a fan of Frank Loesser, especially when he was teamed with Hoagy Carmichael. Wikipedia (click) has an interesting article on the song, and how its
easy I-vi-IV-V progression made it a piano-duet competitor for "Chopsticks."

The song came out in 1938, and three versions charted in 1939. I imagine I first heard the song on the 1952 recording by The Four Aces.

HEART AND SOUL
(Frank Loesser & Hoagy Carmichael)

Heart and soul, I fell in love with you
Heart and soul, the way a fool would do
Madly...
Because you held me tight
And stole a kiss in the night...
Heart and soul, I begged to be adored
Lost control, and tumbled overboard
Gladly...
That magic night we kissed
There in the moon mist
Oh! but your lips were thrilling, much too thrilling
Never before were mine so strangely willing
But now I see, what one embrace can do
Look at me, it's got me loving you
Madly...
That little kiss you stole
Held all my heart and soul


Keberoxu, just for you, here's a link to "Play That Song" by Train: ...and if you don't like that one, I suppose there's not much chance you'll like Train's "Hey Soul Sister": I got exposed to a number of younger performers while I was working on the Rise Again Songbook. After awhile, I found that I didn't mind them as much as I expected to.

I remember "Hey Soul Sister" and that one is pleasant enough.
It's just this latest sample/update that drives me nuts.
