It Had To Be You
Gus Kahn / Isham Jones // 1924

Seems like dreams like I always had
Could be, should be, making me glad
Why am I blue? It's up to you to explain
I'm thinking maybe baby I'll go away
Someday someway You'll come and say
It's you I need and you'll be pleading in vain

It had to be you
It had to be you
I wondered around
And finally found somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me feel blue
And even be glad, just to be sad
Thinking 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 gives me a thrill
With all your faults dear I love you still
It had to be you
Wonderful you
It had to be you

For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults dear, I love you still
It had to be you
Wonderful you
It had to be you
