Exactly Like You

Written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields.

I used to have a perfect sweet-heart,
Not a real one, just a dream
A wonderful vision of us as a team
Can you imagine how I feel now, love is real now, it’s ideal
You’re just what I wanted and now it’s nice to live,
Paradise to live:

CHORUS
I know why I’ve waited, know why I’ve been blue,
Prayed each night for someone exactly like you
Why should we spend money on a show or two
No one does those love scenes exactly like you
You make me feel so grand I want to hand the world to you
You seem to understand each foolish little scheme I’m
Scheming dream I’m dreaming, now I know why mother
Taught me to be true she meant me for some-one exactly like you
