Oh! You Beautiful Doll lyrics – music by Nat Ayer, lyrics by A. Seymour Brown, performed by George Murphy and Judy Garland in For Me and My Gal

Honey dear, want you near,
Just turn out the lights and then come over here!
Nestle close, up to my side,
My heart’s afire, with love’s desire
In my arms, rest complete,
I never thought that life could ever be so sweet
‘Til I met you, some time ago,
But now you know,
I love you so!
