Guys And Dolls – I'll Know lyrics

For I've imagined every bit of him
To the strong moral fiber to the wisdom in his head
To the homey aroma of his pipe
You have wished yourself a Scarsdale Galahad
The breakfast eating, Brooks Brothers type
Yes, and I shall meet him when the time is right

You've got the guy all figured out
I have
Including what he smokes, all figured out, huh?
All figured out

I'll know when my love comes along
I won't take a change
I'll know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance
And you'll know at a glance by the two pair of pants
I'll know by the calm steady voice

Those feet on the ground
I'll know as I run to his arms
That at last I've come home safe and sound
Until then, I shall wait
Until then, I'll be strong
Oh, I'll know, when my love comes along

No, no, no! You are talking about love
You can't dope it like that
What are you picking, a guy or a horse?
I wouldn't expect a gambler to understand

Would you like to hear how a gambler feels
About the big heart throb?
No!
Well, I'll tell you

Mine will come as a surprise to me
Mine I lead to chance and chemistry
Chemistry?
Yeah, chemistry

Suddenly I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know then and there
I'll know at the sight of her face
How I care, how I care, how I care
And I'll stop and I'll stare

And I'll know long before we can speak
I'll know in my heart
I'll know and I won't ever ask
Am I right, am I wise, am I smart?
And I'll stop. And I'll stare

At that face, in the throng
Yes, I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know
When my love comes along

I'll know, I won't take a chance
I know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance
Until then, I shall wait
And till then, I'll be strong
Oh, I'll know when my love comes along
