lyrics by Jerry Adler, music by Robert Allen
popularized by Doris Day, summer 1958, Columbia Records.
Everybody loves a lover;
I'm a lover: everybody loves me!
Anyhow, that's how I feel.
Wow! I feel just like a Pollyanna!
I should worry? Not for nothing!
Everybody loves me, yes, they do!
And I love everybody since I fell in love with you!
Who's the most popular personality?
I can't help thinking it's no one else but me!
Gee, I feel just about ten feet tall,
Having a ball! Guess you might call me a Pollyanna!
Everybody loves a lover...
(Instrumental leading to the first four lines and lines 9-12 being sung together in counterpoint. When this is done, the last phrase of the twelfth line is then sung as,
"Well, I feel just like a Pollyanna!"
Then the song concludes with the four lines beginning, "I should worry?"
