    Love me, love me, love me, say you do
    Let me fly away with you
    For my love is like the wind, and wild is the wind
    Wild is the wind
    Give me more than one caress, satisfy this hungriness
    Let the wind blow through your heart
    For wild is the wind, wild is the wind


    You touch me,
    I hear the sound of mandolins
    You kiss me
    With your kiss my life begins
    You're spring to me, all things to me
    Don't you know, you're life itself!

    Like the leaf clings to the tree,
    Oh, my darling, cling to me
    For we're like creatures of the wind, and wild is the wind
    Wild is the wind



    Like the leaf clings to the tree,
    Oh, my darling, cling to me
    For we're like creatures in the wind, and wild is the wind
    Wild is the wind

    The song has been recorded many times, including twice by Nina Simone, first on the live album Nina Simone at Town Hall (1959) and then in a studio recording included on Wild Is the Wind(1966). David Bowie recorded a version of it for his 1976 album Station to Station. Bowie was an admirer of Simone’s style, and after meeting her in Los Angeles was inspired to record the song for his album.

    Shirley Horn recorded a version in 1961, and another (with full orchestra) in 1992 on her signature album Here's to Life. In 1963, Nancy Wilson included the song on her album Hollywood – My Way. The Dutch band Clan of Xymox released a version of the song in 1994 on their album Headclouds. Australian/English band Fatal Shore recorded "Wild Is the Wind" in 1997 for their self-titled debut album. Britpop band Rialto recorded it on their 1998 album Dream Another Dream. George Michael recorded it on his 1999 album Songs from the Last Century, and Cat Power(Chan Marshall) recorded a version on her 2000 album The Covers Record, as well as a live version for iTunes in 2006. Randy Crawford covered the song on her 2001 album Permanent (akaPlay Mode). Scottish singers Storm Gordon (as featured on her 2001 album-debut Radio Wonderlust Vol. 1) and Billy Mackenzie, have also recorded the song. Billy MacKenzie's version appeared posthumously on the 2001 EP Wild Is the Wind and on the 2005 album Transmission Impossible. TV on the Radio sampled Nina Simone's version on the song "Say You Do" on their self-released 2002 debut OK Calculator. In 2003, Barbra Streisand recorded the song for her album The Movie Album (2003), and filmed a music video. Amel Larrieux recorded the song for her 2007 album Lovely Standards. Nina Simone's version appeared on the trailer for the 2008 movie Revolutionary Road. In 2010, Bat for Lashes released a limited 7" vinyl on Record Store Day in the UK that included live version of the song on the B-side. Esperanza Spalding recorded a version of the song for her 2010 album Chamber Music Society.
