"I Wish I Were in Love Again" is a show tune from the 1937 Rodgers and Hart musical Babes in Arms. In the original show, Dolores, the Sheriff’s daughter (played by Grace McDonald), talks to Gus, her former boyfriend (Rolly Pickert), who tries to woo her unsuccessfully. They then sing about how they do not care that their relationship is over. The song was omitted from the 1939 film version.

Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney performed it in the 1948 film Words and Music. Rooney and Garland released it as a single in 1948 as a b-side with "Johnny One Note."[1]
