Verse:
Three words in my dic -tion -a -ry
I nev -er could see,
But to my vo -cab -u -la -ry
I've add -ed those three.
I'm wait -ing for some -one
To say them to me.
 
Chorus:
Three lit -tle words, Oh! what I'd give for
That won -der -ful phrase. To hear those
Three lit -tle words, That's all I'd live for
The rest of my days, And what I
Feel in my heart they tell sin -cere -ly,
No oth -er words can tell it half, so clear -ly,
Three lit -tle words, eight lit -tle let -ters
Which sim -ply mean, "I love you!"
