My features are no gems of regularity,
It's more than charity.
To call them fair.
I'm not so very brilliant, and oh God, oh Gee,
With no kid prodigy
Do I compare.
I have ordinary habits
Like a million Other Babbitts-
My morals never quite come up to scratch,
And tho' I'm as mediocre
As a cup of hotel mocha,
I'm sure you couldn't find a better match.


There's something nice about you
What can it be? Oh, let me see.
Maybe it's me.
I'm not so much without you,
But you're a she that needs a he.
Maybe it's  me.
By yourself you're so dumb it's embarrassin'
But with me you are smart by comparison.
There's something nice about you.
What can it be? 
Now, let me see.
Maybe it's me
