Why do I do just as you say? Why must I just give you your way? Why do I sigh? Why do I try to forget? It must have been that something lovers call "Fate" Kept on saying I had to wait I saw them all Just couldn't fall till we met It had to be you, it had to be you I wandered around and finally found the somebody who Could make me be true, could make me be blue And even be glad just to be sad thinkin' of you Some others I've seen might never be mean Might never be cross or try to be boss, but they wouldn't do For nobody else gave me a thrill With all your faults, I love you still It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you ********************** as rec by Ronnie Carroll w Wally Stott & his Orch 1965 Seems like dreams like I always ha Could be, should be, makin' me glad; Why am I blue? It's up to you to explain! I'm thinkin' maybe, baby, I'll go away; Some day, some way you'll come and say, "It's you I need!", and you'll be pleadin' in vain! It had to be you, It had to be you, I wandered around And finally found The somebody who Could make me be true, Could make me be blue, And even be glad Just to be sad, Thinkin' of you. Some others I've seen Might never be mean, Might never be cross Or try to be boss, But they wouldn't do! For nobody else gave me that thrill, With all your faults, mmm I love you still. It had to be you, Wonderful you, It had to be you! For nobody else gave me that thrill, With all your faults, dear, I love you still. It had to be you, Wonderful you, It had to be you, (scat) With all your faults I love you still. It had to be you, Wonderful you, It had to be you! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2011)
