Verse:
Oh! what a day,  So much to say,
Tell - ing pret - ty things a - bout you.
Sweet - heart I guess,  Since you said "yes",
I've told it to most ev - ry - one I knew.
I felt so glad I had to shout it.
I let the whole world know a - bout it.
 
Chorus:
I told the whip - per - will, told the daff - o - dill, just how pret - ty you smile.
I told them, all a - bout you.
I told each lit - tle bird, ev - 'ry sing - le word that you say is worth - while.
Yes I told them, all a - bout you.
I told the moon and ev - 'ry star that shines a - bove,
A - bout the way you roll your eyes and how you love.
Each lit - tle hon - ey bee knows there's gon-na be hon - ey moon - ing for two,
'Cause I told them, all a - bout you.
