Lyrics: It had to be you
It had to be you
I wandered around and I finally found
The somebody who
Could make me be true
And could make me be blue
And even be glad just to be sad thinking of you

Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
But they wouldn't do
For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you
