Garland, Judy - You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want To Do It) Lyrics

Dear, Mister Gable
I am writing this to you
And I hope that you will read it
So you know
My heart beats like a hammer
And I stutter and I stammer
Every time I see you at the picture show
I guess I'm just another fan of yours
And I thought I'd write and tell you so
Oh, oh, oh

You made me love you
I didn't wanna do it
I didn't wanna do it
You made me love you
And all the time you knew it
I guess you always knew it

You made me happy sometimes
You made me glad
But there were times sir
You made me feel so sad

You made me sigh cause
I didn't wanna tell you
I didn't wanna tell you
I think your grand
That's true
Yes I do
'Deed I do
You know I do

I must tell you what I'm feeling
The very mention of your name
Sends my heart reeling
You know you made me Love you

Oh dear Mister Gable,
I don't wanna bother you
I guess you got a lot of girls that tell you the same thing
If you don't wanna read this letter well,
You don't have to, but I just had to tell you
'Bout the time I saw you in a cabin one night,
That was the first time I ever saw you
I knew right then you were the nicest fella in the movies
I guess it was cause you acted so... so natural like
Not like a real actor, no. but just like any fella
You'd meet at school or at a party
Then one time I saw you in a picture with Joan Crawford
I had to cry a little
Cause you loved her so much, and you couldn't have her.
Well, not until the end of the picture anyway
And then one time I saw you in person
You were going to the coconut gogo night
And I was standing there when you got out of your car
And you almost knocked me down
Oh but it wasn't your fault, I was in the way
But you looked at me, and you smiled.
Yeah, you smiled right at me as if you meant it
And I cried all the way home just cause you smiled at me
For being in your way
Oh, I'll never forget it Mister Gable
Honest engine
Your my favorite actor.

I don't care what happens
Let the whole world starve
As far as I'm concerned you'll always be the top
'Cause you know you made me Love you

    Judy Garland is the only one who can sing this song and make me believe it.

    Still amazing.


    +SteveZodiac2001 Patsy Cline also sings it with great sincerity

  6. EDOG'S Music

    Love Judy. Miss her so much.


    No one! Sings it better than Al Jolson.

    Kitten In Space

    False. No one sings it better than *Screamin' Jay Hawkins* ;D heheh
    There are so many great versions honestly. Judy's is amazing aswell!

  8. Eileen Seeley

    Judy sings everything with such feeling,I Love This.

  9. Vivian Ramos

    I love this song. It reminds me of the old lady I looked after in the care home. I told her of year2k version which always makes her laugh. "You made me love you, you wake me up and do it, you wake me up and do it. "

  10. Marmulia Siahaan

    I know this song because Mitch Albom's books The Five People You Meet in Heaven. And guess what? It's so amazing song.. 

  11. Carol Watt

    If you listen to her first recording of this in 1938 when she was 14, her voice is pure innocence and full of wonder and hope.  Then listen to this version and you can hear the adult woman she had become and all the pain and passion of her life is reflected in her voice.  I so loved this woman <3

  12. Sadra Abravanel

    No one like Judy, ever.,Eternally

  13. Anna-Laura Hocker

    I never get tired of her voice. She was a gift from God!

  14. Lee Larson

    A very difficult piece to be done as a vocal, after Harry James re-created good music with his 1941 instrumental recording.

  15. AgentStarling13

    No one could sing this better than JUDY! Ariana Grande cannot hold a candle - sorry but it is the way it IS.

  16. Its Rayning

    I was reading a book, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and the main character said that he met his first true love to this song. I thought I'd see what it sounded like.

  17. jdawsonnn

    me too!!

  18. Sue Koh

    Judy Garland is the real deal !!! What passion and power and sensitivity in this woman's voice, gotta love her, Cheers to Judy !!!

  19. Barbara Palaith Newson

    The One , the only Judy Garland!

  20. Baylie Carson

  21. vadennotbaden

    Great artist. Back in the days when the artists relied on talent, and not outrageous behavior, to sell their music.

  22. karolina torres

  25. alicia garcia

    me too.. :) hah

  26. nicole

    ariana grande brought me here


    WOW !!!!!!! Fantastic voice, we have no talent like this now. Unfortunetly we have lady gag gag and beyonce and just a bunch of no talent idiots.

  28. poorlittlerichiegirl

    Absolutely wonderful :)

  29. Adri Vail

    Wow , beautiful

  30. Hy Tran

    61 year old now !!

  31. Steffi Reitsch

    Gifted with a unique, beautiful, distinctive voice. Interesting to hear how her voice had matured from her teenage years with this song. Of courrse she drank liquor, used drugs and smoked cigarettes and her health declined. By the mid 1960s one could discern the diminished voice quality.But in 1951 still great.
