So in Love
(Written by Cole Porter for the musical "Kiss me, Kate", 
Esther Ofarim sang it in two versions on the Cole Porter tv Show, 1971)

English/German version:

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,
Decieve me, desert me,
I'm yours till I die,
So in love with you, my love, am I.

Du bist mein Leben
ich bleib Dir ergeben
trotz Tränen und Streit
ich bin Dein für alle Zeit.

Träume versanken
doch meine Gedanken
sind Dir nur geweiht
ich bin Dein für alle Zeit.

Ich weiss noch genau den ersten Tag
an dem Du mich zart umfingst
oft denk ich auch an den schwersten Tag
als Du böse von mir gingst.

So quäl mich, belüg mich,
verlass mich, betrüg mich
ich weiss alle Zeit
ich bin Dein bis in die Ewigkeit.

English only version:

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,
The thought that you might care.

So taunt me, and hurt me,
Decieve me, desert me,
I'm yours till I die,
So in love with you, my love, am I.

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,
Decieve me, desert me,
I'm yours till I die,
So in love, so in love, so in love 
with you, my love, am I.

So in love, so in love, so in love!
