Some Little Something About You  (1909) 
by Irving Berlin
Publication copyright 14 October 1909. Music by Ted Snyder.
Verse 1

I've met lots of girlies who were just my style,
Girls whose charms most any boy would share,
girls who captivate you with their roguish smile,
Girls you think beyond compare.
When I saw the love-light in your eyes, sweetheart,
When you smiled on me so tenderly,
Mischief-making Cupid perced me with his dart,
Something told me you were meant for me.

Chorus

Some little something about you,
Some little somethng, dear,
Means I can't live without you,
I always want you near.
Some hidden charm makes me love yuo,
Something I cannot see,
And I know one thing,
Some little something
Means you're the girl for me.

Verse 2

Oft I've wondered if another boy like me
Thinks there's something sweet about you too.
I'll admit it's made me jealous as could be,
That's because I love you true.
Then again, I thought of what the poets say,
"Faint heart never won lady fair."
So I don't intend to wait another day,
There's a cozy home that we can share.

Chorus

Some little something about you,
Some little somethng, dear,
Means I can't live without you,
I always want you near.
Some hidden charm makes me love yuo,
Something I cannot see,
And I know one thing,
Some little something
Means you're the girl for me.
