  • Just one look and I fell so hard
    In love with you, oh oh, oh oh
    I found out how good it feels
    To have your love, oh oh, oh oh

    Say you will, will be mine
    Forever and always, oh oh, oh oh
    Just one look and I knew
    That you were my only one
    Oh oh oh oh!

    I thought I was dreamin'
    But I was wrong, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh, but-a, I'm gonna keep on schemin'
    Till I can a-make you, make you my own!

    So you see, I really care
    Without you I'm nothin', oh oh, oh oh
    Just one look and I know
    I'll get you someday, oh oh, oh oh

    Just one look, that's all it took
    Just one look, that's all it took
    Just one look, that's all it took Writer/s: Doris Payne, Gregory Carroll
