About To Know Him Is To Love Him

"To Know Him Is to Love Him" is a song written by Phil Spector, inspired by words on his father's tombstone, "To Know Him Was To Love Him." It was first recorded by the only vocal group of which he was a member, the Teddy Bears. Their recording spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1958, while reaching No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart chart. Peter & Gordon and Bobby Vinton later had hits with the song, with its title and lyrics changed to "To Know You Is to Love You". In 1987, the song was resurrected by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris, whose Trio recording topped the U. S. country singles chart. The song is in 12/8 time.

To know, know, know him 
Is to love love love him 
Just to see him smile 
Makes my life worthwhile 
To know know know him 
Is to love love love him 
And I do 

I'll be good to him 
I'll bring love to him 
Everyone says there'll come a day 
When I'll walk alongside of him 
Yes, just to know him 
Is to love love love him 
And I do 

Why can't he see 
How blind can he be 
Someday he will see 
That he was meant for me, ooh

To know, know, know him 
Is to love love love him 
Just to see him smile 
Makes my life worthwhile 
To know, know, know him 
Is to love love love him 
And I do
