  • Gee whiz, look at his eyes
    Gee whiz, how they hypnotize
    Hes got everything a girl could want
    Man, oh, man, what a prize! Ooohoo

    Gee whiz, hes all the joy
    Gee whiz, I could find in a boy
    Hes awful nice, its paradise
    I hope I'm not hes decoy

    Heaven up above knows how much
    I love that gentle soul
    Angels sing of a love like this
    I hope our love will grow and grow

    Oh, gee whiz, I love that guy
    Gee whiz, my, my, oh my
    There are things we could do
    I could say I love you
    But all I can say is, gee whiz!
