Oh my dear, When he's near, I just feel like passin' out! So big and strong, So full of youth, Oh momma, Oh poppa, Tell me the truth! Ain't he sweet! See him comin' down the street, Now I ask you very confidentially, Ain't he sweet, huh? Ain't he nice! Look him over once or twice, Now I ask you very confidentially, Ain't he nice? Just cast an eye in his direction, Oh me oh my, ain't that perfection! I repeat, Don't you think he's kind of neat? And I ask you very confidentially, Ain't he sweet? What a man, I'll say! How he can, hey-hey! Look him up, and down, There's the handsomest man in town! What a smile he's got, Get that style, it's hot! Me for him, no joke, I could love him if he was broke! Said ain't he sweet When he passes down the street, Everybody whispers confidentially, "Ain't he sweet!". Ain't he cute! In his brand new chequered suit, Now I ask you very confidentially, Ain't he cute? Oh can't you see How I adore him? If he wants me, I'm right here for him, bo-doh-doh-de-oh! When we meet, Just knock me off my feet! And I ask you very confidentially, Ain't he sweet? That's all! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011)
