Let It Be Me    (1957)

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me.

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me.

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me.

Let it be me
Please, let it be me
Please, let it be me.

I bless the day
I found you.
Girl, all I wanna do
Is stay around you
So let it be me.
Don't ever take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Then, let it be me.

Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me
Please... let it be me...
