You Was Lyrics

by Dean Martin

(With Peggy Lee)

(PL) If you were to ask me who the sweetest one I knew was
I'd say you was
(DM) If you were to ask me who my favorite point of view was
I'd say you was
(PL) When you're not near my heart is inclined to waste away
(DM) But when you're here the funny part is
My heart is a spherical lyrical miracle all the day
(PL) If you were to ask me who the apple of your eye was
I'd say I was
(DM) If you were to ask me who your sweet potato pie was
I'd say I was
(PL) Supposing you paid a visit to a certain preacher
(DM) Supposing you overheard me practicing "I do"
And you were to ask me who the bride and groom to be was
(PL) I'd say we was
(DM) Me and you
(PL) I've got a heart that hollers when you're not close to me
(DM) But when you're near it sorta follows
(Both) There isn't a lovelier heaven or bubblier place to be
(DM) If I were to ask you who the girl I'd glorify was
(PL) I'd say I was
(PL) If I were to ask you who the boy I'd like to tie was
(DM) I'd say I was
(PL) Supposing you heard that I was shopping for a trousseau
(DM) Supposing I bought you something old and something new
And you were to ask us who the bride and groom to be was
(PL) I'd say (both) we was me and you
(PL) You was
(DM) You was
(PL) You was
(DM) I was
(Both) We was me and you
