It Had To Be You

Album: Trilogy: Past Present Future (1924)
  • It had to be you, it had to be you
    I wandered around and finally found, that somebody who
    Could make me be true
    Could make me feel blue
    And even be glad just to be sad, thinking of you

    Some others I've seen
    Might never be mean
    Might never be cross, or try to be boss
    But they wouldn't do

    For nobody else gave me a thrill
    With all your faults, I love you still
    It had to be you, wonderful you
    It had to be you

    Some others I've seen
    Might never be mean
    Might never be cross, or try to be boss
    But they wouldn't do

    For nobody else gave me a thrill
    With all your faults, I love you still
    It had to be you, wonderful you
    It had to be you Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
