by Jerome Kern (music) and P. G. Wodehouse (lyrics)
Song from the musical Leave It to Jane.

(Bessie.) I'm so happy! Life doesn't seem the same.
You can't see it, But inside I'm all aflame!
I haven't felt this way since once I sunk a ten-foot putt
Which I needed to win the game.
Oh! the sun shines brighter than it used to,
And the world becomes worthwhile.
Little dickybirdies sing the wedding march;
And Nature seems to smile.
The breeze in the trees brings a scent of orange blossom
And the skies turn soft and blue,
When there's no one 'round except the man you love,
And the man you love loves you.
(Stub.) I'm so happy! I've simply got to sing!
I'll break records, When I run to buy the ring.
I don't know who the fellow was who first invented life,
But he started a darned good thing.
Oh! the sun shines brighter than it used to,
And the world becomes worthwhile.
Little dickybirdies sing the wedding march;
And Nature seems to smile.
The breeze in the trees brings a scent of orange blossom
And the skies turn soft and blue,
When there's no one 'round except the man you love,
And the man you love loves you.
