From an Admirer of Words, to Her Dear Husband

You're just too marvelous,
Too marvelous for words
Like 'glorious,' 'glamorous,'
And that old stand-by 'amorous.'

You're just too wonderful;
I'll never find the words
That tell enough, spell enough;
I mean they just aren't swell enough!

You're much too much,
And just too very varied
To ever be in Webster's dictionary.
And so I'm borrowing
A love song from the birds
To tell you that you're marvelous--
Too marvelous for words.

1937 Lyrics by Johnny Mercer, Music by Richard Whiting
