Song Lyric Sunday | “Itching in My Heart” – The Supremes


Song Lyric Sunday banner


Song Lyric Sunday is sponsored by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word At a Time. For the guidelines or to suggest a theme, start here.

This week’s theme is “madness.”

Like my #SongLyricSunday post on Nesie’s Place, this one is also so last century!

Ever have an itch you couldn’t scratch? It will drive you nuts!

This video is in color—go, 1966!—though it could be clearer.

The Supremes came to party and the choreography is stunning… LI-TER-AL-LY! 😀

Love is Like An Itching in My Heart

by The Supremes

Songwriters: Brian Holland / Edward Jr. Holland / Lamont Herbert Dozier

The love bug done bit me,
Didn’t mean for him to get me,
Woo, get up in the morning
And I’m filled with desire,
No, no, I can’t stop the fire,
Love is real live wire,
Oo, it’s a burning sensation,
Far beyond imagination.
Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart, tearing it all apart,
Just an itching in my heart,
And, baby, I can’t scratch it.
Keeps me sighing, oo
Keeps me yearning,
No mama can’t help me,
No daddy can’t help me
I’ve been bitten by the love bug,
And I need some information
o help me out of this situation,
Now, when you’re ill you take a pill,
When you’re thirsty, drink your fill,
What you gonna do, oh yeah,
when love gets a hold, a hold on you,
Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart,
And, baby, I can’t scratch it.
Love is a nagging irritation,
Causing my heart complication,
Love is a growing infection,
And I don’t know the correction,
Got me rocking and a-reeling,
And I can’t shake the feeling.
Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart,
tearing it all apart,
Just an Itching in my heart,
And, baby, I can’t scratch it
