Some day, when I'm awfully low When the world is cold I will feel a glow just thinking of you And the way you look tonight
Yes, you're lovely, with your smile so warm And your cheeks so soft There is nothing for me but to love you And the way you look tonight
With each word your tenderness grows Tearin' my fear apart And that laugh wrinkles your nose Touches my foolish heart
Lovely ... Never, never change Keep that breathless charm Won't you please arrange it? 'cause I love you Just the way you look tonight
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose It touches my foolish heart
Lovely ... Don't you ever change Keep that breathless charm Won't you please arrange it ? 'cause I love you A-just the way you look tonight Mm... Mm... Just the way you look tonight
