I've got a man, his name is Pe-ete
He's awfully good and oh so sweet
He's not the kind that you usually meet
He loves me so-o and I love Pete
A gal that I know loves a boy named Ji-im
Though he treats her mean she still loves him
And Sally loves Joe who's the kind that'll cheat
Some men are like that but not my Pete
He never beats me
Never mistreats me
He never teases
He only pleases
I take my troubles with a grain of salt
'Cause I've got a man without a fault
I put him on trial, he passed every te-est
Whatever he does, he does his best
I've got no complaints and my life is complete
'Cause I've got a man whose name is Pete
He never beats me
Never mistreats me
He never teases
He only pleases
I take my troubles with a grain of salt
'Cause I've got a man without a fault
I put him on trial, he passed every te-est
Whatever he does, he does his best
I've got no complaints and my life is complete
'Cause I've got a ma-an, what a ma-an
His name is Pete...
