What makes a fellow feel sad?
What makes a fellow feel glad?
Girls are the cause of it all
Ev'ry time we all fall
That's just my idea of you
You're just the same dear, it's true.
Think of the things that we do, dear,
When we meet one like you.

Just a girl like you makes all the world seem glad
Just a girl like you keeps me from feeling sad,
Roses seem the sweeter,
Love comes back anew.
Ev'ry thing is sunshine with a girl like you.
