[Verse 1]
I’ve met a lot of girls in ev’ry city,
I’ve met a lot of girls I thought were fine,
I have met a lot of girls I thought were pretty,
And I’ve met a lot of girls I thought divine,
But I knew the very moment that I met you,
That you had won my heart and that is why I’m sure I couldn’t possibly forget you,
And I tell you now I never mean to try.

[Refrain 1]
I’m looking for a sweetheart
And I think you’ll do,
I think you are the nicest girl I ever knew.
I don’t know how I strike you,
I only know I like you,
I am looking for a sweetheart and I think you’ll do.

[Verse 2]
There’s something in my heart that seems to tell me,
I love you and I only hope it’s true,
And I hope that nothing happens to compel me,
To give my love to anyone but you.
It’s nice to have two loving arms around you,
To hug you, there is bliss in ev’ry kiss,
And that is why I’m very glad I’ve found you,
I have never known such happiness as this.

[Refrain 2]
I’m looking for a sweetheart
And I think you’ll do,
I think you are the nicest boy I ever knew.
I know just how you strike me,
I’m very glad you like me,
I am looking for a sweetheart and I think you’ll do.
