Hug a little, love a little, that's what I like about you, (scat)
Squeezer, little teaser, is more than you say that you do!
And there's another little thing,
I like another little thing,
I like you know what to do when the doin' it is necessary!
Just a gentle temperamental playboy from double do,
Gentle temperamental with nothin' to do,
Just a little different from anyone I ever knew.
Every thing you do is swell,
what you do you do so well,
You yes a little, no a little, that's what I like about you!
