The Very Thought Of You
Ray Noble (w/m)
1934
VERSE 1
I don't need your photograph,
To keep by my bed;
Your picture is always in my head.
I don't need your portrait, dear.
To call you to mind,
For sleeping or waking, dear, I find.
The very thought of you, and I forget to do,
The little ordinary things that ev'ryone ought to do.
I'm living in a kind of daydream,
I'm happy as a king,
And foolish tho' it may seem,
To me that's ev'rything.
The mere idea of you, the longing here for you,
You'll never know how slow the moments go 'till I'm near you.
I see your face in ev'ry flower;
Your eyes in stars above,
It's just the thought of you,
The very thought of you, my love.
VERSE 2
I hold your responsible,
I'll take it to law,
I never have felt like this before.
I'm suing for damages
Excuses won't do,
I'll only be satisfied with you.
