It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around and finally found
Somebody who could make me feel blue could make me be true
And even be glad, just to be sad thinkin' of you

Some others I've seen might never be mean
Might never, ever be cross or try to be boss
But they, they wouldn't do for nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults baby, I love you still

It had to be you, it had to be you, it had to be you
It had to be you, it had to be you
Wandered around and finally found
Somebody who could make me feel blue, hey, could make me be true
Even be glad, just to be sad thinkin' of you

Some others I've seen, might never be mean, don't be so mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
But they, they wouldn't do but nobody else gave me that look or thrill
With all your faults woman, I love you still

It had to be, it had to be, it had to be you, hey, hey
It had to be you, it had to be you, hey
I said, it had to be, it had to be, it had to be you
You doggone, woman, you
