Love in the First Degree

   (Brooks)

Transcribed from Cleo Brown, vocalist, recorded April 4, 1936,
From: Cleo Brown: The Legendary Cleo Brown, President Records, PLCD 548.

When you start acting silly,
Doin' things like Brother Willy,
That's love in the first degree.

When you start using byways,
Instead of public highways,
That's love, babe, it's in the first degree.

When you get a kiss, and a little hug,
And you want some love,
And some hey-de and some hi-de and some zazz-zuh-zazz!

When things start lookin' hazy,
And folks all say you're crazy,
That's love; it's in the first degree.

When you start acting silly,
Doin' things like Sister Lily,
That's love in the first degree.

When you start using byways,
Instead of public highways,
That's love, it's in the first degree.

When you get a kiss, and a little hug,
And you want some love,
And some ho-de and some hi-de and some zazz-zuh-zazz!

When things start lookin' hazy,
And folks all think you're crazy,
That's love; babe, it's in the first degree.
