Lyrics I MET
THIS PERFECTLY MARVELOUS GIRL
IN THIS
PERFECTLY WONDERFUL PLACE,
AS I LIFTED A GLASS
TO THE START
OF A MARVELOUS YEAR.
BEFORE YOU KNOW IT
SHE CALLED ON THE PHONE,
INVITING,
NEXT MOMENT
I WAS NO LONGER ALONE,
BUT SAT RECITING
SOME PERFECTLY BEAUTIFUL VERSE
IN MY CHARMING AMERICAN STYLE.
HOW I DAZZLED HER SENSES
WAS TRULY
NO LESS THAN A CRIME.
NOW I'VE THIS
PERFECTLY MARVELOUS GIRL
IN MY PERFECTLY
BEAUTIFUL ROOM
AND WE'RE LIVING TOGETHER
AND HAVING A MARVELOUS TIME.

SHE TELLS ME
PERFECTLY MARVELOUS TALES
OF HER THRILLINGLY
SCANDALOUS LIFE,
WHICH I'LL PROBABLY USE
AS A CHAPTER OR TWO
IN MY BOOK.
AND SINCE
MY STAY IN BERLIN
WAS TO FORCE CREATION,
WHAT LUCK TO FALL
ON A FABULOUS SOURCE
OF STIMULATION.
AND PERFECTLY WONDERFUL TOO
IS HER PERFECT AGREEMENT
TO BE SUCH A WONDERFUL HELP
TO MY RATHER DISORGANIZED LIFE.
YES,
I'VE A HIGHLY AGREEABLE TIME
IN MY PERFECTLY WONDERFUL ROOM
WITH MY NEARLY INVISIBLE,
PERFECTLY MARVELOUS WIFE.

AND NOW THIS WILD,
UNPREDICTABLE GIRL
AND THIS PERFECTLY
BEAUTIFUL MAN
WILL BE LIVING TOGETHER
AND HAVING A MARVELOUS,
PERFECTLY MARVELOUS TIME.
