Somebody's tall and handsome,
Somebody's brave and true,
Somebody's hair is very dark,
And somebody's eyes are blue.

Somebody came to see me,
Somebody came last night,
Somebody asked me to marry him,
And of course I said, "All right."

The ring is on my finger;
Of course, you cannot guess
The one who placed it there
The night I told him yes.
