You’re the Girl I’ll Marry

Refrain:

You’re the girl I’ll marry.

You leave me light and airy.

Couldn’t leave that pretty face behind.

Caught up in daydreams, all of the sweet things,

You deserved, to hear, I didn’t say.

***

I liked the way you held me tight.

Stealing kisses late at night.

I liked the way your hand fit mine.

Can’t keep you out of my mind.

***

Refrain:

You’re the girl I’ll marry.

You leave me light and airy.

Couldn’t leave that pretty face behind.

Caught up in daydreams, all of the sweet things,

You deserved, to hear, I didn’t say.

***

You called to meet me after nine. 

Said, you want to spend some time.

Dropped everything to be with you.

I didn’t think about it twice.

***

Final Refrain:

Would you be there in my life?

Be the one I’ve waited for?

No one could ever hope for more.

I’m asking you tonight.

***

Tag:

I hope we marry, and my dreams, come, true.
