It Had To Be You

It had to be you
It had to be you
I wandered around
And finally found
The somebody who
Could make me be true

Could make me be blue
Or even be glad
Just to be sad
Thinking of you

Some others I've seen
Might never been mean
Might never be crossed
Or try to be bossed
But they wouldn't do

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