Looking At You

(Cole Porter)


Looking at you, my troubles are fleeing
I'm in my ring of view, cos it's you I'm seeing
And the sweet honeydew of well-being settles upon me

I ask you, what is this light
That shines when you enter like a star in the night
What's to prevent her from destroying my sight
If you center all of it on me

Looking at you
I'm filled with the essence of
The quintessence of joy
Just looking at you
I can't help but sing it of
Who's my favorite boy, my darling?

Life seemed so gray, I wanted to end it
Til that wonderful day you started to mend it
And if you'll only stay
Then I'll spend it looking at you

I'm filled with the essence of
That old quintessence of glee
I can't help but thinking of
What are you making of me, darling?

Life seemed so gray, I wanted to end it
Til that wonderful day you started to mend it
And if you'll only stay
Then I'll spend it looking at you
