Lyrics:

(Musixmatch)

It had to be you

It had to be you

I wandered around and finally found

The somebody who

Could make me be true

Could make me be blue

Or 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

Some others I’ve seen

Might never be mean

Might never be cross

Try to be boss

They wouldn’t do

For nobody else gave me a thrill

With all your faults, I love you still

Baby, it had to be you, wonderful you

Had to be you
