Lyrics verse:
EV'RY DAY
IS A BRAND NEW DAY
WHEN YOU ARE MINE,
BUT THE MOMENT
THAT YOU GO AWAY,
NO SUN WILL SHINE.
YOUR LOVE IS MY REWARD,
EACH NIGHT I THANK THE LORD
TELL ME
TILL TIME IS DONE
WE'LL BE ONE.

Chorus:
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU,
THEN I AM BLIND,
A MAN WITHOUT A MIND,
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU.
BUT NO,
I AM NOT BLIND,
MY EYES HAVE TRAVELLED EVERYWHERE
IN HOPE
THAT I MIGHT FIND
A CREATURE HALF SO FAIR
IF THERE IS SOMEONE LOVELIER THAN YOU,
BY ALL THAT'S BEAUTIFUL,
SUCH BEAUTY CAN'T BE TRUE.

Lyrics IS THE STRUGGLE AND STRIFE WE FIND IN THIS LIFE
REALLY WORTH WHILE AFTER ALL
I'VE BEEN WISHING TODAY I COULD JUST RUN AWAY
OUT WHERE THE WEST WINDS CALL

WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU A PAL GOOD AND TRUE
I'D LIKE TO LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND AND GO AND FIND
SOME PLACE THAT'S KNOWN TO GOD ALONE
JUST A SPOT TO CALL OUR OWN
WE'LL FIND PERFECT PEACE WHERE JOYS NEVER CEASE
OUT THERE BENEATH A KINDLY SKY
WE'LL BUILD A SWEET LITTLE NEST SOMEWHERE IN THE WEST
AND LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY

IS THE FUTURE TO HOLD JUST STRUGGLES FOR GOLD
WHILE THE REAL WORLD WAITS OUTSIDE
AWAY OUT ON THE BREAST OF THE WONDERFUL WEST
ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE

WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU A PAL GOOD AND TRUE
I'D LIKE TO LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND AND GO AND FIND
SOME PLACE THAT'S KNOWN TO GOD ALONE
JUST A SPOT TO CALL OUR OWN
WE'LL FIND PERFECT PEACE WHERE JOYS NEVER CEASE
OUT THERE BENEATH A KINDLY SKY
WE'LL BUILD A SWEET LITTLE NEST SOMEWHERE IN THE WEST
AND LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY

Lyrics [verse 1]:
NIGHTIME AM A-FALLIN',
EV'RYTHING IS STILL,
AND THE MOON AM A-SHININ'
FROM ABOVE.
CUPID AM A-CALLIN',
EV'RY JACK AND JILL,
IT'S JUST ABOUT THE TIME
FOR MAKING LOVE.
SOME IS AWAITING
ALL ALONE FOR ME,
NO MORE HESITATING,
I MUST GO AND SEE.
HOW DE DO, DEAR.
IT'S WITH YOU, DEAR,
THAT I LOVE TO BE.

[Chorus]:
PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME,
HONEY,
HOLD ME TIGHT.
HUDDLE UP AND CUDDLE UP
WITH ALL OF YOUR MIGHT.
OH, BABE,
WON'T YOU ROLL DEM EYES,
EYES THAT I JUST IDOLIZE.
WHEN THEY LOOK AT ME
MY HEART BEGINS TO FLOAT,
THEN IT STARTS A-ROCKIN'
LIKE A MOTORBOAT.
OH, OH,
I NEVER KNEW
ANY GIRL LIKE YOU.

[verse 2]:
MUSIC AM A-PLAYIN'
SUCH A LOVIN' GLIDE
THAT MY FEET KEEP A-MOVING
TO AND FRO.
AND WITH YOU A-SWAYIN'
I'LL BE SATISFIED
TO DANCE UNTIL WE HEAR THE ROOSTERS CROW.
I LOVE SEVEN 'LEVEN,
I LOVE CHICKEN TOO,
NEAREST THING TO HEAVEN
IS TO BE WITH YOU.
FOR I'M SPOONY,
MOONY,
LOONY,
BUT MY LOVE IS TRUE.

[Chorus]:
PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME,
HONEY,
HOLD ME TIGHT.
HUDDLE UP AND CUDDLE UP
WITH ALL OF YOUR MIGHT.
OH, BABE,
WON'T YOU ROLL DEM EYES,
EYES THAT I JUST IDOLIZE.
WHEN THEY LOOK AT ME
MY HEART BEGINS TO FLOAT,
THEN IT STARTS A-ROCKIN'
LIKE A MOTORBOAT.
OH, OH,
I NEVER KNEW
ANY GIRL LIKE YOU.
