On The Town, 1949
VERSE
I used to think it might be fun to be
Anyone else but me;
I thought that it would be a pleasant surprise
To wake up as a couple of other guys;
But what a night,
Suddenly you came in sight,
Looking just the way I'd hoped you'd be;
I'm so lucky to be me;
I am simply thunderstruck
At this change in my luck,
Knew at once I wanted you,
Now that I've found you,
I've changed my point of view;
And now I wouldn't give a dime to be
Anyone else but me.
REFRAIN
What a day,
Fortune smiled and came my way,
Bringing love I never thought I'd see,
I'm so luck to be me;
Never dreamed you'd want me too;
I'm so proud you chose me from all the crowd,
There's no other guy I'd rather be,
I could laugh out loud,
I'm so lucky to be me.
