(Mark Charlap (m) Norman Gimbel (l) 1958)
as recorded by Connie Francis
with orchestra and chorus
directed by Leroy Holmes
Never before have I ever glowed with such a glare,
Spun round in my chair,
A mile of smile with miles to spare!
Never before, girl scouts' honour, have I been this gay,
Gay as a daisy patch in May.
I feel so swell I'll yell it, yowee! (yowee)
Is this thrill familiar? N-O, no no!
Never, not once, have I ever hopped around for joy,
Like some trick wound up toy,
Shakes and shivers for a boy,
Never before, only after I met you!
