I know why I've waited
I know why I've been blue
I prayed each night for someone
Exactly like you

Why should we spend money
On a show or two?
You know, no one does those love scenes
Exactly like you

You make me feel so grand
I wanna hand the world to you
You seem to understand
Each foolish little scheme I'm schemin'
Dream I'm dreamin'

Now I know why my mama
Taught me to be true
She meant me for someone
Exactly like you

I know why I've waited
Know why I've been blue
Prayed each night for someone
Exactly like you

Now why should we spend money
On a show for two?
When no one does those love scenes
Exactly like you

You make me feel so grand
I want to hand the world to you
You make me understand
Each foolish little scheme I'm schemin'
Dream I'm dreamin'

I know why my mother
Taught me to be true
She meant me for someone
Exactly like you

No, exactly like you
Exactly like you
Exactly like you
Exactly like you
No, Tony, exactly like you
Yes, dear
