I used to have a perfect sweetheart
Not a real one, just a dream
A wonderful vision of us as a team

Why should we spend money
On a show or two
No one does those love scenes

You make me feel so grand
I want to hand the world to you
I hope you'll understand
Each foolish little scheme I'm schemin'
And dream I'm dreamin'

Now I know why mother
Taught me to be true
She meant me for someone
Exactly like you
