Time on my hands, you in my arms, nothing but love in view Then if you fall once and for all, I’ll see my dreams come true Moments to spare with someone you care for, one love affair for two And so with time on my hands and you in my arms and love in my heart, all for you

Your poise! Your pose! That cute fantastic nose! You’re mighty like a knockout, you’re mighty like a rose I’m sold, I’m hooked, the well known goose is cooked You got me little fella; I’m sunk, I’m gone, I’m hooked

Sometimes I’m happy, sometimes I’m blue. My disposition depends on you I never mind the rains from the sky as long as I can find the sun in your eyes Sometimes I love you, sometimes I hate you. But when I hate you, it’s ‘cause I love you That’s how I am, so what can I do? I’m happy when I’m with you

I never mind the rains from the sky as long as I can find the sun in your eyes
Sometimes I love you, sometimes I hate you. But when I hate you, it’s ‘cause I love you
That’s how I am, so what can I do? I’m happy when I’m with you
