lyrics

Like the honeybee to the marigold,
Like the sweet tooth to the sugar bowl,
Like the tide to the moon,
I’ve taken a shine to you

Like the summer sun to the skin,
Like the bow to the violin,
Like the drunk to the saloon,
I’ve taken a shine to you

I’ve taken a shine to you,
To everything you do,
I’ve taken a shine to you

Like the seasick to the land,
Like the fallen to the helping hand,
Like the broken heart to the blues,
I’ve taken a shine to you
Oh, little girl you know it’s true,
I’ve taken a shine to you
