About Some Kind of Wonderful

"Some Kind of Wonderful" is a song by Gerry Goffin and Carole King that was first released by the Drifters in 1961. (It is not related to another song of the same name which was written by John Ellison and first released by Soul Brothers Six in 1967). The Drifters' original recording of the Goffin/King song reached No. 32 on the US Billboard pop chart and No. 6 on the US Billboard R&B chart. Notable covers include versions by Marvin Gaye (1967), Jay and the Americans (1970), Carole King (1971), Peter Cincotti (2004), Aled Jones featuring Cerys Matthews (2007), and Michael Bublé on the deluxe editions of his fourth studio album, Crazy Love (2010). On the double album The Drifters 24 Original Hits (UK, 1975, Atlantic Records), the song is mistakenly credited to John Ellison. Conversely, on the Q-Tips' self-titled debut album (UK, 1980, Chrysalis Records), the Ellison song is mistakenly credited to Goffin and King

All you have to do is touch my hand
To show me you understand
And something happens to me 
That's some kind of wonderful

Any time my little world is blue 
I just have to look at you
And every thing seems to be 
Some kind of wonderful

I know I can't express 
This feeling of tenderness
There's so much I wanna say
But the right words just don't come my way

I just know when I'm in your embrace (wonderful)
This world is a happy place (wonderful)
And something happens to me
That's some kind of wonderful
Some kind of wonderful (sweetness)
Some kind of wonderful (oh my)
ohh (some kind)
Some kind of wonderful

Some kind of wonderful (sweetness)
Some kind of wonderful, wonderful, wonderful (oh my)
Some kind (some kind) of wonderful
Ohh, ohh
