[I saw you first.]  Now wait a minute. [Nobody else is gonna get you]
[I saw you first.]  Yeah, I mean it.  [Nobody else is gonna catch you.,]
[You smiled at me, that was my lucky break,]
[Gave you that double take, except to myself]
Quote [Oh Frankie!] unquote [you gave advice] I did?
[I suddenly found myself in clover.]
[I tumbled flat] You sure did. [that was the time that you took over].
[If someone else wants to try this love scene,] with me?
What do I tell em, baby?  [Just tell them I saw you first.]
I'll try to remember that I saw you first.  [lay?]  Baby I should have seen you sooner.
I saw you first. [oh gee] think you could ever stand the crooner?  [Uh huh]
You smiled at me, that was my lucky break, gave you that double take
Except to myself [What did you say?] That does it!
You gave it this, I was like a clown in clover,
And that first kiss, that was the time that you took over.
So if my other love affair should go and burst, remember I saw you first
