  • Whenever I see your smiling face
    I have to smile myself
    Because I love you, yes, I do
    And when you give me that pretty little pout
    It turns me inside out
    There's something about you, baby
    I don't know

    Isn't it amazing a man like me
    Can feel this way
    Tell me how much longer
    It could grow stronger every day
    Oh, how much longer?

    I thought I was in love a couple of times
    Before with the girl next door
    But that was long before I met you
    Now I'm sure that I won't forget you
    And I thank my lucky stars
    That you are who you are
    And not just another lovely lady
    Set out to break my heart

    Isn't it amazing a man like me
    Can feel this way
    Tell me how much longer
    It could grow stronger every day
    How much longer?

    No one can tell me that I'm doing wrong today, whenever I see you smile at me
    No one can tell me that I'm doing wrong today
    Whenever I see your smiling face my way
    No one can tell me that I'm doing it wrong today
    No one can tell me that I'm doing it wrong today, no, no, darling
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
    Ye, ye, ye, ye, ye, ye, ye, ye, ye, ye Writer/s: JAMES TAYLOR
