The very thought of you

And I forget to do

Those little ordinary things

That everyone ought to do

I'm livin' in a kind of a daydream

I'm happy as a queen

And foolish though it may seem

To me that's everything
The mere idea of you

The longing here for you

You'll never know

How slow the moments go

Till I'm near to you

I seeyour face in every flower

Your eyes in stars above

It's just the thought of you

The very thought of you my love

(bridge)

I see your face in every flower

Your eyes in stars above

It's just the thought of you

The very thought of you my love
