Verse 1

Little girly,
Late and early,
You'll be on my mind.
For you're just the kind
I tried so long to find.
When you're near me,
When you cheer me,
I can plainly see,
Love is everything that
It's cracked up to be.

Refrain 1

Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you!
No other girl will do.
Cares would be forever ended,
And this world would be so splendid.
If you cared enough, dear,
To be true.
Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you!
Those lips!  Those eyes of blue!
You're so lovely; you're so sweet;
You simply lift me off my feet.
Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you-oo!

Verse 2

In replying,
I am trying
To be shy and coy,
But, oh, wonder boy,*
I can't restrain my joy.
Something tells me
And compels me
To say you were right
In believing love may
Often come at sight.

Refrain 2

Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you!
What can a girly do!
I find you so fascinating
That my heart keeps palpitating
In a way that thrills me
Through and through.
Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you!
I'm sure I could be true.
You're so splendid, so ideal,
That I keep wondr'ing if you're real.*
Oh me!  Oh my!  Oh you-oo!

*Alternate version of verse 2, line 4:
But, with you, dear boy,

*Alternate version of refrain 2, line 9:
I really can't believe you're real.
