Dreamer's Holiday ~ circa 1960

To Know You
( Is To Love You ) ( 1952 Version )

To know you, is to love you,
And I love you . . . 'cause I know you . . .
Are such a sweetheart . . .
that when you walk down the street,
Everyone's heart, just naturally skips a beat!

The others, who have met you,
Better start in . . . to forget you . . .
Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
To know you . . . love me!

To know you . . .
( Were you the sun, it would be twice as sunny! )
. . . is to love you!
( Were you a bee, there would be sweeter honey! )
And I love you . . .
( Were you a tune everyone would be croonin'. . . )
'Cause I know you . . .
( Harmonizin' out in the street! )
. . .  are such a sweetheart . . .
( You're such a bundle of me oh my! )
 . . . that when you walk down the street
( And that's the reason when you go by . . . each heart )
Everyone's heart . . .

( . . . naturally skips a beat! )

. . . just naturally skips a beat!

( Dear . . . )

The others . . .
( Were you the spring, you would be twice as springy! )
Who have met you . . .
( Were you a vine, you would be twice as clingy! )
Better start in . . .
( Were you the moon, everyone would be spoonin'! )
To forget you . . .
( Every night would be mighty sweet! )
Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
To know you . . . love me!

( Were you a room you would be twice as cozy! )
Oh . . . ( To Know You . . . )
Were you the sun it would be twice as sunny! . . .
( . . . is to love you . . . )
Were you a bee you could be sweeter honey . . .
(  . . . and I love you . . . )
Were you a tune everyone would be croonin'. . .
( 'Cause I know you . . . )
Harmonizin' out in the street!
( . . . are such a sweetheart . . . )
You're such a bundle of me oh my!
( . . . that when you walk down the street . . . )
And that's the reason when you go by . . . each heart . . .
( . . . everyone's heart . . . )
naturally skips a beat!
( . . . just naturally skips a beat! )

Dear . . .  
( The others . . . )
Were you the spring, you would be twice as springy!
( Who have met you . . . )
Were you a vine, you would be twice as clingy!
( Better start in . . . )
Were you the moon, everyone would be spoonin'!
( To forget you . . . )
Every night would be mighty sweet!
Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
( To know you . . . )
You make my life a bowl of peaches and cream!
( . . . is to love you )
You got me livin' in the craziest dream!
To know . . . that . . .you love me!
