When I First Saw You

Lyrics:

I knew when I first saw you
Was it that glimmer in your eye
Or that funny, crooked smile
I knew when I first saw you
That you were the only one for me

Those skimpy dresses, funny floppy hats
The sound of your sweet voice
Caught me of me guard
We were sipping champagne, or was it [?]
On your neighbor's front lawn
I never felt like this before

And I knew when I first saw you
Was it that glimmer in your eye
Or that crooked, [?] smile
I knew when I first saw you
That you were the only one for me

On that summer's day, as far as I could tell
You didn't look so good, you didn't seem too well
Like you were in a dream, off in some far distant land
I could feel your pain, I could understand

And I knew when I first saw you
Was it that glimmer in your eye
Or that funny, crooked smile
I knew when I first saw you
That you were the only one for me

I took you to one side
And held you oh so tight
Your flimsy satin dress
Fell so easily from your shoulders
As we kissed, in the parting of your lips, I knew

I knew when I first saw you
Was it that glimmer in your eye
Or that funny, crooked smile
I knew when I first saw you
That you were the only one for me
