From the Show: Where’s Charley? (1948)
My darling, my darling, I’ve wanted to call you my darling,
For many and many a day.
My darling, my darling, I fluttered and fled like a starling,
My courage just melted away.
Now all at once you kissed me and there’s not a thing
I’m sane enough to say, except
My darling, my darling, get used to that name of my darling,
It’s here to stay.
