You Bet Your Life

"Everyone Says I Love You"

Everyone says I love you
The cop on the corner and the burglar too
The preacher in the pulpit and the man in the pew
Says I love you

Everyone, no matter who
The folks over eighty and the kid of two
The captain and the sailor and the rest of the crew
Says I love you

There are only eight little letters in this phrase, you'll find
But they mean a lot more than all the other words combined

Everywhere the whole world through
The king in the palace and the peasant too
The tiger in the jungle and the monk in the zoo
Says I love you

Everyone says I love you
The great big mosquito when-a he sting you
The fly when he gets stuck on the flypaper too
Says I love you

Every time the cow says-a moo
She's-a make-a the bully very happy too
And the rooster when he holler cock-a-doodley-doodley-doo
Says I love you

Christopher Columbo, he write the Queen of Spain a very nice-a little-a note
And-a he's-a write "I love-a you, my dear"
And then he get himself a great-a big-a boat
Ah, he's a wise-a guy!

Whaddayou think Columbo do
When he's-a come here in 1492?
He say to Pocahontas, "atchy-catchy-catchy-coo"
That means "you little son-of-a-gun, I love you!"

Everyone says I love you
But just what they say it for I never knew
It's just inviting trouble for the poor sucker who
Says I love you

Take a pair of rabbits who
Get stuck on each other and begin to woo
And pretty soon you'll find a million more rabbits who
Say I love you

When a lion gets feeling frisky and begins to roar
There's another lion who knows just what he's roaring for

Everything that ever grew
The goose and the gander and the gosling too
The duck upon the water when he feels that way too
Says - [quack, quack, quaaaaack!]
