Oh! what a day, So much to say,
Telling pretty things about you.
Sweetheart I guess, Since you said "yes,"
I've told it to most evryone I knew.
I felt so glad I had to shout it.
I let the whole world know about it.
I told the whipperwill, told the daffodill, just how pretty you smile.
I told them, all about you.
I told each little bird, ev'ry single word, that you say is worthwhile,
Yes I told them, all about you.
I told the moon and ev'ry star that shines above,
About the way you roll your eyes and how you love.
Each little honey bee knows there's gonna be, honey-mooning for two,
'Cause I told them, all about you.
