Perry Como - "To Know You (Is To Love You) (1959 Version)" lyrics

To know you, is to love you,
And I love you . . . 'cause I know you . . .
Are such a sweetheart . . . that when you walk down the street,
Everyone's heart, just naturally skips a beat!

The others, who have met you,
Better start in . . . to forget you . . .
Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
To know you . . . love me!

Were you the sun, it would be twice as sunny,
Were you a bee, there would be sweeter honey,
Were you a tune everyone would be croonin'
Harmonizin' out in the street!
You're such a bundle of me oh my,
And that's the reason when you go by,
Each heart naturally skips a beat!
Dear . . .

The others . . .
( Were you the spring, you would be twice as springy! )
Who have met you . . .
( Were you a vine, you would be twice as clingy! )
Better start in . . .
( Were you the moon, everyone would be spoonin'! )
To forget you . . .
( Every night would be mighty sweet! )
Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
To know you . . . love me!

Because, to know you is to love you so,
It's time for everyone you know,
To know you . . . everyone should know you . . .
Know . . . yes, know . . . you love me!
