Richard Morrison sings Cole Porter's So in Love from Kiss Me Kate
Click: Strange dear, but true dear, When I'm close to you, dear, The stars fill the sky, So in love with you am I. Even without you, My arms fold about you, You know darling why, So in love with you am I. In love with the night mysterious, The night when you first were there, In love with my joy delirious, When I knew that you could care, So taunt me, and hurt me, Deceive me, desert me, I'm yours, till I die..... So in love.... So in love.... So in love with you, my love... am I....`````````
