Lyrics

You’re so right for me.
(Keep sayin’ it, I’m okayin’ it.)
Just the one for me.
(You’re sellin’ me, keep on tellin’ me.)
How I need your clinging caress!
Your fabulous lips!
Your voice saying “yes!”
How could I replace
(hey cover girl you’re my lover girl.)
The light that lights your face?
(Let’s kiss a lot, live like this a lot.)
Now I see the way it’s mean to be
‘Cause you’re so right for me.

You’re so right for me.
(Keep sayin’ it, I’m okayin’ it.)
Just the one for me.
(You’re sellin’ me, keep on tellin’ me.)
How I need your clinging caress!
Your fabulous lips!
Your voice saying “yes!”
How could I replace
(hey cover girl you’re my lover girl.)
The light that lights your face?
(Let’s kiss a lot, live like this a lot.)
Now I see the way it’s mean to be
‘Cause you’re so right for me.
