8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
When my sweetheart writes to me,  I get bright and gay,
When she thinks I am not true,  I write her and say:
"Baby darling you're all wrong,  I'm so good and true,
Ev'ry little thing I do,  Makes me think of you."  'Cause,
I'm so busy,  Getting dizzy,  Always busy that's true.
I'm always hust - ling,  Always bustling,  But never too busy for you.
I like hugging,  I like squeezing,  I like loving too,  
But I'm so busy,  Just too busy,  For any girl but you.
All the boys that I have met,  Have girls by the score,
But the girls those boys take out,  I'm too busy for.
When my phone rings and I find it's Mary,  Jane or Lou,
I say busy,  Oh so busy,  But never too busy for you.
