Once In Love With Amy

music and lyric by Frank Loesser

I caught you sir, having a look at her as she was strolling by.
Now, didn't your heart go boom, boom, boom, boom, boom?
Now, didn't you sigh a sigh?
I warn you, sir, don't start to dream of her, just bid such thoughts be gone,
Or it will be boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,
Boom, boom, boom, boom from then on--
For once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy,
Ever and ever fascinated by her, sets your heart afire to stay.
Once you're kissed by Amy, tear up your list, it's Amy,
Ply her with bonbons, poetry and flowers, moon a million hours away.
(Slick down your hair and send the lady flowers)
You might be quite the fickle-hearted rover, so carefree and bold,
Who loves a girl and later thinks it over (who tells himself it's over, and it's over)
And just quits cold.
Ah, but once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy.
Ever and ever, sweetly you'll romance her,
Trouble is the answer will be ha, ha, ha, ha,
That Amy'd rather stay in love with me!
