I’m Just Wild About Harry was the most popular number of the Broadway show Shuffle Along. That was the first financially successful Broadway play to have African-American writers and an all African-American cast. The song broke what had been a taboo against musical and stage depictions of romantic love between African-Americans.

There’s some fellow for me in this world
Harry’s his name
That’s what I claim
Why for ev’ry fellow there
Must be a girl
I’ve found my mate
By kindness of fate

[Chorus]
I’m just wild about Harry
And Harry’s wild about me
The heav’nly blisses
Of his kisses
Fill me with ecstasy
He’s sweet just like choc’late candy
And just like honey from a bee
Oh I’m just wild about Harry
And he’s just wild about
Cannot do without
He’s just wild about me

There are some fellows that like all the girls
I mean the vamps
With cruel lamps
But my Harry says
I’m the girl of all girls
I’m his Ideal
How happy I feel

[Chorus]
I’m just wild about Harry
And Harry’s wild about me
The heav’nly blisses
Of his kisses
Fill me with ecstacy
He’s sweet just like choc’late candy
And just like honey from a bee
Oh I’m just wild about Harry
And he’s just wild about
Cannot do without
He’s just wild about me
