From the Show:  Lew Leslie's International Revue  (1930)

 
I know why I've waited, know why I've been blue,
Prayed each night for someone exactly like you.
Why should we spend money on a show or two.
No one does those love scenes exactly like you.
You make me feel so grand, I'd like to hand the world to you.
You seem to understand each foolish little scheme I'm scheming,
And the dream I'm dreaming,
Now I know why my mother taught me to be true,
She meant me for someone exactly like you.

(musical interlude)

You make me feel so grand, I wanna hand the world to you.
You seem to understand each foolish little scheme that I'm scheming,
And the dream that I'm dreaming,
Now I know why my mother, she taught me to be true,
She meant me for someone exactly like you.
