Two versions were recorded: the first was released on record and is in a higher key than the second. RCA chose take # 13 for release. Fred Wise and Ben Weisman are the composers.

 

Lyrics:

I look at you and wham, I'm head over heels

I guess that love is a banana peel
I feel so bad and yet I'm feeling so well
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

One crazy kiss and bam, I head for the skies
I guess that love is like a cape of ice
You skate along but then you can never tell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

1. I never thought I'd get kicked by you sweet talking lies
You've got a bag of tricks
And when you get busy, I got dazzled and dizzy
I fell like a ton of bricks

2. My knees are weak, my head is spinning around
I guess that love has turned me upside down
Thought I'd get hurt, but gee, it's turning out swell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

 

1. 2. (repeat)

I slipped, I stumbled, I fell
