Louise (Chevalier 1929) lyrics
Wonderful! Oh it's wonderful
To be in love with you.
Beautiful, you're so beautiful,
You haunt me all day through.
Every little breeze seems to whisper "Louise."
Birds in the trees seem to twitter "Louise."
Each little rose tells me it knows I love you.(love you)
Every little beat that I feel in my heart
Seems to repeat what I felt at the start.
Each little sigh tells me that I adore you, Louise.
Just to see and hear you is joy I never knew,
But to be so near you thrills me through and through.
Anyone can see why I wanted your kiss.
It had to be, but the wonder is this:
Can it be true, someone like you
Could love me, Louise.

Note: Readers' Digest "Treasury of Best Loved Songs" notes
that Maurice Chevalier sang "Louise" in his 1929 American
debut film, Paramount's "Innocents of Paris."
The song became a smash hit, and so did the singer.
