(Peggy Lee:) If you were to ask me who the sweetest one I knew was
I'd say you was
(Dean Martin:) If you were to ask me who my favorite point of view was
I'd say you was
(Peggy Lee:) When you're not near my heart is inclined to waste away
(Dean Martin:) But when you're here the funny part is
My heart is a spherical lyrical miracle all the day
(Peggy Lee:) If you were to ask me who the apple of your eye was
I'd say I was
(Dean Martin:) If you were to ask me who your sweet potato pie was
I'd say I was
(Peggy Lee:) Supposing you paid a visit to a certain preacher
(Dean Martin:) Supposing you overheard me practicing "I do"
And you were to ask me who the bride and groom to be was
(Peggy Lee:) I'd say we was
(Dean Martin:) Me and you
(Peggy Lee:) I've got a heart that hollers when you're not close to me
(Dean Martin:) But when you're near it sorta follows
(Both) There isn't a lovelier heaven or bubblier place to be
(Dean Martin:) If I were to ask you who the girl I'd glorify was
(Peggy Lee:) I'd say I was
(Peggy Lee:) If I were to ask you who the boy I'd like to tie was
(Dean Martin:) I'd say I was
(Peggy Lee:) Supposing you heard that I was shopping for a trousseau
(Dean Martin:) Supposing I bought you something old and something new
And you were to ask us who the bride and groom to be was
(Peggy Lee:) I'd say (both) we was me and you
(Peggy Lee:) You was
(Dean Martin:) You was
(Peggy Lee:) You was
(Dean Martin:) I was
(Both) We was me and you
