"Mr. Wonderful" Lyrics
Lyrics & music by: Jerry Bock, George David Weiss & Larry Holofcener
Music by: Hugo and Luigi Peretti
This was the title song of a 1956 Broadway musical starring Sammy Davis, Jr.
Why this feeling? Why this glow?
Why the thrill when you say Hello?
Its a strange and tender magic you do
Mr. Wonderful, that's you.
Why this trembling when you speak
Why this joy when you touch my cheek?
I must tell you what my heart knows is true
Mr. Wonderful, thats you.
And why this longing to know your charms
To spend forever here in your arms
Oh theres much more I could say
But the words keep slipping away
And Im left with one point of view
Mr. Wonderful, thats you
One more thing, then I'm through
Mr. Wonderful, I love you!
