[Verse 1]
There’s a girl
I’m wild about
Ev’ry time I take her out
I hug her
I squeeze her
I tease her so
And we always can be found
Where there’s no one else around
Do we cuddle?
Do we pet?
You ain’t heard nothin’ yet.

[Verse 2]
Ev’rytime she’s alone
When i call her on the phone
I hurry
I scurry
I worry so
I’m afraid that I might see
Someone there in place of me
If I lost her
What blow
I love her Oh! Oh! Oh!

I love her in the morning
And I love her at night
I love her, yes I love her
When the stars are shinning bright
I love her in the springtime and I love her in the fall,
But last night on the back porch I loved her best of all. I all
The first time that I met her
It was true love at first sight in the parlor taxi.
