"Suddenly Lovely"

Suddenly lovely,
Suddenly my life is lovely,
Suddenly living
Certainly looks good to me.
Suddenly happy,
Suddenly my heart is happy -
Is it a girl?
Could be, could be.

Suddenly lovely,
Suddenly to be together,
Suddenly sharing
Ev'rything we hear and see,
Suddenly wond'ring,
Suddenly I wonder whether
Are we in love for ever and for good?
Are we happy as we could be?
Could be!
