8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I used to have a perfect sweetheart, Not a real one, just a dream,
A wonderful vision, Of us as a team.
Can you imagme how I feel now, Love is real now, it's a deal.
Your just what I wanted,  And now its nice to live, Paradise to live:
I know why you've waited, Know why you'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 want to hand the world to you,
You seem to understand, Each foolish little scheme I'm scheming, Dream I'm dreaming.
Now I know why mother, Taught me to be true,
She meant me for someone, Exactly like you.
