It Had To Be You

Lyric by Gus Kahn. Music by Isham Jones (1924)

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 feel 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.

Recorded by Ruth Etting in 1936 for the film Melody in May.
