Song facts

From Wikipedia:

I’m in Love” is a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. In 1963 the English Merseybeat band the Fourmost made a recording of the song at the EMI Studios, produced by George Martin.

Billy J. Kramer also recorded a version of the song, but the version by the Fourmost was selected for the issue and reached number 17 in the United Kingdom.

The B-side, “Respectable“, is a cover from the Isley Brothers.

In America, the song was released in 1965 by a West Coast Band, The New Breed. It was the B-Side of “Green-Eyed Woman” (Diplomacy Records). According to Answers.com, the record was successful in the Bay Area (their home base) and other parts of California, but not nationally.

Recordings of “I’m in Love” as the Beatles may have performed it are available on the 1989 album by Bas Muys entitled Secret Songs: Lennon & McCartney and on the 1998 release It’s Four You by the Australian tribute band The Beatnix.

A Beatles demo version was released in 2013 on the iTunes exclusive album The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963.

Lyrics

I've got something to tell you, I'm in love,
I've been longing to tell you, I'm in love.
You'll believe me, when I tell you,
I'm in love with you.

You're my kind of girl,
You make me feel proud,
You make me want to shout aloud,
Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love.

Ev'ry night I can't sleep, thinking of you
And ev'ry little thing that you do,
Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love.

Oh yeh, I'm sittin' on the top of the world,
I'm in love with a wonderful girl,
And I never felt so good before,
If this is love, give me more, more, more, more.

Ev'ry night I can't sleep, thinking of you
And ev'ry little thing that you do,
Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love.

Oh yeh, I'm sittin' on the top of the world,
I'm in love with a wonderful girl,
And I never felt so good before,
If this is love, give me more, more, more, more.

Ev'ry night I can't sleep, thinking of you
And ev'ry little thing that you do,
Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love

Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love.

Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love, in love.

Yes, I'm telling all my friends, I'm in love.
