Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you

Embrace me, you irreplaceable you

 

Just one look at you

My heart grew tipsy in me

You and you alone

Bring out the Gypsy in me

 

I love all the many charms about you

Above all, I want these arms about you

 

Don't be a naughty baby

Come to papa, come to papa do

My sweet embraceable you

 

<brief interlude>

 

I love all the many charms about you

Above all, I want my arms about you

 

So don't you be, a naughty baby

Come to papa do

My sweet embraceable you
