It Had To Be You

It Had To Be You
music by Isham Jones (left)
lyric by Gus Kahn (right)

Why do I do just as you say?
Why must I just give you your way?
Why do I sigh, why don't I try to forget?
It must have been that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying, "I have to wait."
I saw them all, just couldn't fall 'til we met...

It seems like dreams, like I've always said,
Could be, should be making me glad.
But why am I blue?
It's up to you to explain.

I'm thinking, maybe, Baby, I'll go away.
Some day, some way, you'll come and say,
"It's you that I need," maybe you'll be pleading in vain...

It had to be you, it had to be you,
I wandered around and finally found the somebody who,
Could make me be blue, could make me be true
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.
