by Jerome Kern (music) and Edgar Allan Woolf (lyrics)
Song from the musical Head over Heels.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

It seems mighty queer,
Ev'ry time you're near
Something so strange
Starts me a swaying
First thing that I know
I am going to
Oh what a change
O'er me is playing
I'll do just like you
Snap my fingers too,
When that strain
I hear that again
Wonder what can be
Draws you so to me
Something cute
There's no dispute.

[Chorus]

Something 'bout you honey
That send a something thro' me
Makes me feel so funny
A sort of wriggly, wiggly, giggly feeling round my heart
That sets me reeling
Something 'bout you honey
A cutie little something makes the skies all sunny,
For you have such a doggone way about you
I just can't feel gay without you
Funny little something
It starts me struggling
What can it be?
There's no use struggling
Funny little something
You've made a fool of me

[Verse]

When you go away,
Mem'ries of you stay.
Each little shrug
Keeps on a struggling
I know what I'll do
Practise just like you
In corners snug
I'll study snuggling
Ev'ry little kick
Ev'ry little trick
I will catch
And I will snatch
I'll not hesitate
You to imitate,
If you're cute
I'll follow suit.

[Chorus]

Something 'bout you honey
That send a something thro' me
Makes me feel so funny
A sort of wriggly, wiggly, giggly feeling round my heart
That sets me reeling
Something 'bout you honey
A cutie little something makes the skies all sunny,
For you have such a doggone way about you
I just can't feel gay without you
Funny little something
It starts me struggling
What can it be?
There's no use struggling
Funny little something
You've made a fool of me
