Funny Face, 1927
VERSE 1
Life has just begun.
Jack has found his Jill,
Don't know what you've done,
But I'm all a thrill.
How can words express
Your divine appeal?
You can never guess
All the love I feel.
From now on lady I insist,
For me no other girls exist.
REFRAIN 1
'S wonderful!
'S marvelous!
You should care for me!
'S awful nice
'S paradise!
'S what I loce to see!
You've made
My life so glamerous
You can't blame me for feeling amorous
Oh! 'S wonderful
'S marvelous! That you should care for me!
VERSE 2
Don't mind telling you,
In my humble fash,
that you thrill me through
With a tender pash.
When you said you care,
'Magine my emosh;
I swore then and there
Permanent devosh.
You made all other boys seem blah;
Just you alone filled me with Aa!
REFRAIN 2
'S wonderful!
'S marvelous!
You should care for me!
'S awful nice
'S paradise!
'S what I loce to see!
My dear,
It's four leaf clover time
From now one my heart's working over time
Oh! 'S wonderful
'S marvelous! That you should care for me!
