Lyrics

I used to be so fancy free,
But really lonesome as could be,
Till one lucky day, you came my way
I never knew what love was all about
Until I met you.

I used to think there’d never be,
A girl who’d ever care for me,
Then, what díya know, you made it so,
I never knew what love was all about,
Until I met you.

When you kissed me,
I felt the season change from winter to spring
When you kissed me,
I lost my reason ’cause I heard the birds sing
I felt like a king

And now I have to rub my eyes
Each time I try to realize
That your love is mine
Ain’t it just fine
I never knew what love was all about
Until I met you

Since I found you,
I feel the entire universe real
I never knew what love was about
Until I met you
I’m the happiest boy ’cause you bring me nothing but joyy
I never knew what love was all about
Until I met you

And now I have to rub my eyes
Each time I try to realize
That your love is mine, ain’t it just fine
I never knew what love was all about
Until I met you.
