Just you know why
Why you and I
Will by and by
Know true love ways

Sometimes we'll cry
Sometimes we'll sigh
And you know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

Throughout the days
Our true love ways
Will bring us joy to share
With those who really care

Sometimes we'll cry
Sometimes we'll sigh
And you know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

Sometimes we'll cry
Sometimes we'll sigh
And you know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

And you know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways
