I take to you like the duck takes to water,
Just like ink takes to a blotter,
Like a foot takes to a shoe!

I take to you, like birds take to flyin',
Like babies take to cryin',
I take to you!

Wanted some love, and did I strike it;
Now I'm up-side daisy,
Show me a gal that doesn't like it,
And I'll show you a gal that's crazy!

I take to you, like an egg takes to bacon,
Like cocktails take to shakin',
Like you take to me, I take to you!

Wanted some love, and did I strike it;
Now I'm up-side daisy,
Show me the gal that doesn't like it,
And I'll show you a gal that's crazy!

I take to you, like an egg takes to bacon,
Like cocktails take to shakin',
Like you take to me, I take to you!
