you go to my head lyrics – rufus wainwright

you go to my head, and you linger like a haunting refrain
and i find you spinning ’round in my brain
like the bubbles in a gl*ss of champagne

you go to my head, like a sip of sparkling burgundy brew
and i find the very mention of you
like the kicker in a julep or two

the thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea,
casts a spell over me
and i say to myself, “get ahold of yourself!”
can’t you see that this never will be?

you go to my head, (and i forgot the god-darn words)
[incomprehensible lyrics, scat singing]
you intoxicate my soul with your eyes

though i’m certain that this heart of mine
hasn’t a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
you go to my head, you go to my head

the thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea,
casts a spell over me
and i say to myself, “get ahold of yourself!”
can’t you see that it never can be?

you go to my head, with a smile that makes my temperature rise
like a summer with a thousand julys
you intoxicate my soul with your eyes

though i’m certain that this heart of mine
hasn’t a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
you go to my head, you go to my head
you go to my head
