The Way You Do The Things You Do

Lyrics: William Robinson, Robert Rogers
Music: William Robinson, Robert Rogers

Played frequently by Jerry with the JGB

You got a smile so bright
You know, you could've been a candle
I'm holding you so tight
You know, you could've been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know, you could've been a broom
The way you smell so sweet
You know, you could've been some perfume
Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell the way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do

As pretty as you are
You know, you could've been a flower
If good looks were a minute
Baby, you could've been an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could've been a cool crook
And baby, you're so smart
You know you could've been a school book
Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell the way you do the things you do

You made my life so rich
You know, you could've been some money
And baby, you're so sweet
You know, you could've been some honey
Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell the way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do

The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
The way you do the things you do
