  • How lucky can one guy be?
    I kissed her and she kissed me
    Like the fella once said
    "Ain't that a kick in the head?"

    The room was completely black
    I hugged her and she hugged back
    Like the sailor said, quote
    "Ain't that a hole in a boat?"

    My head keeps spinnin'
    I go to sleep and keep grinnin'
    If this is just the beginnin'
    My life is gonna be beautiful

    I've sunshine enough to spread
    It's just like the fella said
    Tell me quick, ain't love a kick in the head?

    Like the fella once said
    "Ain't that a kick in the head?"

    Like the sailor said, quote
    "Ain't that a hole in a boat?"

    My head keeps spinnin'
    I go to sleep and keep grinnin'
    If this is just the beginnin'
    My life is gonna be beautiful

    She's tellin' me we'll be wed
    She's picked out a king-size bed
    I couldn't feel any better or I'd be sick
    Tell me quick, oh, ain't love a kick?
    Tell me quick, ain't love a kick in the head? Writer/s: J. Van Heusen, S. Cahn
