Taking A chance on love
The Benny Goodman Orchestra
Words and Music by John Latouche and Ted Fetter plus additional music by
Vernon Duke

In 1943, Benny Goodman hit # 1 with it and Sammy Kaye got to # 13.
Introduced by Ethel Waters in the Broadway musical "Cabin In the Sky."
Waters later reprised it as a non-charting single with Dooley "Play It
Again, Sam" Wilson.
Then, in 1943, Waters did it in the movie version with Eddie "Rochester"
Anderson

1
Here I go again;
I hear those trumpets blow again;
All aglow again - taking a chance on love.
Here I slide again;
About to take that ride again.;
Starry eyed again - taking a chance on love.

I thought the cards were a frame-up
I never would try.
But now I'm taking the game up
And the ace of hearts is high.

Things are mending now;
I see a rainbow blending now;
We'll have our happy ending now
Taking a chance on love.

2
Here I come again;
I'm gonna make things hum again;
Acting dumb again - taking a chance on love.
Here I stand again;
About to beat the band again;
Feeling grand again - taking a chance on love.

I never dreamed in my slumbers
And bets were taboo.
But now I'm playing the numbers,
On a little dream for two.

Wading in again;
I'm leading with my chin again;
I'm startin' out to win again
Taking a chance on love.

3
Here I slip again;
About to take that tip again;
Got my grip again
Taking a chance on love.

Now I prove again;
That I can make life move again;
In the grove again
Taking a chance on love.

I walk around with a horseshoe,
In clover I lie.
And brother rabbit of course you,
Better kiss your foot goodbye!

On the ball again;
I'm riding for a fall again;
I'm gonna give my all again
Taking a chance on love.
