Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I love you, I love you,
You’re just the king of girl for me,
But there is something ‘bout you, makes me doubt you,
Why, oh! why must it be?
You dare me, you scare me,
And still I like you more each day,
But you’re the kind that will charm, and then do harm,
you’ve got a dangerous way.

[Chorus]
Verse 1:
You’re beautiful, yes, beautiful,
You’re wonderful, I know,
But you’re the kind of girlie that makes ‘em fall,
And when you get ‘em where you want ‘em you fool ‘em all;
I’m on to you, But I’m fond of you,
‘Cause you’re the sweetest girl in the world,
Your love your eyes, I’m fond of your kissing,
But my heart cries:
“Stop, Look and Listen!”
You’re wonderful, just marvelous,
But you’re a doggone dangerous girl.

Verse 2:
You’re beautiful, yes, beautiful,
You’re wonderful, I know,
But you’re the kind of girlie that makes ‘em fall,
And when you get ‘em where you want ‘em you fool ‘em all;
I’m on to you, But I’m fond of you,
‘Cause you’re the sweetest girl in the world,
Your lips have said,
“Now don’t be a stranger,”
But they’re both red,
I know that means danger,
You’re wonderful, just marvelous,
But you’re a doggone dangerous girl.

[Verse 2]
You’re cunning, you’re stunning,
You’re ev’rything a girl should be,
You have a way of dressing, that’s impressing,
Still we never agree.
You rule me, you fool me,
But, yet, I let you have your way,
Altho’ I know you’re not true,
I stick to you,
I love you more ev’ry day .

[Chorus]
