It looks like Suzie,
It must be Suzie,
I'm sure it's Suzie,
But I don't know;
Could be Virginia
With her eyes of blue,
Could be Mary,
Sweet Mary Lou,
But it looks like Suzie,
She talks like Suzie,
She walks like Suzie,
Oh, gosh, oh, gee!
Just ask her if she knows Lou
From Boston, Massachu,
If she does,
Why, then it's Suzie Lee!

It looks like Suzie,
Must be Suzie,
I'm sure it's Suzie,
Aw, but I don't know, let me see;
Could be Virginia
No, she's got eyes of blue,
Then again, it could be Mary,
Sweet Mary Lou,
Ah, but it looks like Suzie,
She talks like Suzie,
Ah, she walks like Suzie,
And if it ain't Suzie, glory!
Now, get all the friends you've known
And give a swell party at your home,
And if she breaks it up,
Whoopie! It's Suzie Lee!

It looks like Suzie,
It must be Suzie,
Sure it's Suzie,
Still, I don't know;
Could be Virginia
With her eyes of blue,
Could be Mary,
Sweet Mary Lou,
But it looks like Suzie,
She talks like Suzie,
She walks like Suzie,
Gosh, oh gee!
Just ask her if she knows Lou
From Boston, Massachu,
And if she does,
Then that's old Suzie Lee!
