You said hello and loneliness said goodbye then
It made me so glad I almost had to cry then
I never believed in love at first sight
But when you held me tight that night
I knew with you it wasn't a lie now
Said oh my my my my my my my
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
Your soul was sweet, your lips were warm and tender
I wanted your kiss, I couldn't resist surrender
I could have sworn that violins played
'Cause when the rhythm swayed
With you so near, I heard the sound of your sigh now
Said oh my my my my my my my
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
I heard you sighing, wo
I felt like crying
You weren't lying, no no
What a sweet thing that was (sweet thing that was)
And then when I heard you whisper the word forever
I knew that we'd live the rest of our lives together
The feeling we shared was too much to bear
And when you said you cared, I swear
I felt that I was ready to die now
Said oh my my my my my my my
(Repeat and fade)
