Verse:
Ev'ryone who sees you says, fascinating face; heavens, what a figure and, "Goodness me, what grace"
Ev'ryone who meets you must lose his heart I find, then he's sure to lose his mind.
 
Chorus:
You're as pleasant as the morning and refreshing as the rain, isn't it a pity that you're such a scatter brain?
When you smile it's so delightful, when you talk it's so insane, still it's charming chatter, scatter brain.
I know I'll end up apop1ectic but theres nothing I can do, it's just the same as being in a hurricane,
And though my life will be too hectic I'm so much in love with you, nothing else can matter you're my darling scatterbrain.
