Little we know of it

On what would have been the 92nd birthday of the stylish and sassy Miss Anita Belle Colton O'Day (who only died five years ago next month), let us immerse ourselves in a little example of her uplifting jazz vocal talent...

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts were made for it.
Let's take a chance.
Why be afraid of it?

Let's close our eyes
And make our own paradise.
Now is the time for it,
While we are young
Why be afraid of it.

We might have been meant for each other.
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover.

Let's fall in love.
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Little we know of it.
Still we can try.
Let's fall in love
