Dear Mr. Gable, I am writing this to you,
and I hope that you will read it so you'll know,
My heart beats like a hammer,
And I stutter and I stammer,
Every time I see you at the picture show.
I guess I'm just another fan of yours,
And I thought I'd write,
and tell you so.

You made me love you,
I didn't wanna do it, I didn't wanna do it,
You made me love you!
And all the time you knew it, I guess you always knew it.
You made me happy, sometimes, you made me glad.
But there were times, sir,
You made me feel so sad.
You made me sigh 'cause,
I didn't wanna tell you, I didn't wanna tell you,
I think you're grand!
That's true, yes I do, 'deed I do, you know I do.
I must tell you what I'm feeling,
The very mention of your name
Sends my heart reeling,
You know you made me love you.

Aw gee Mr. Gable, I don't wanna bother ya, I guess you got a lot of girls who
tell you the same thing. And if you don't wanna read this, well, you don't have
to... But I just had to tell you about the time I saw you in "It Happened One
Night"... That was the first time I ever saw you.. And I knew right then that
you were the nicest fella in the movies! I guess it was 'cause you acted so...
well.. so natural like! Not like a real actor at all but just like any fella
you'd meet at school or at a party.. Then one time I saw you in a picture with
Joan Crawford... and I had to cry a little.. 'Cause you loved her so much! And
you couldn't have her! ...Well, not 'till the end of the picture, anyway. The
one time I saw you in person! You were going to the Coconut Grove one night and
I was standing there when you got out of your car and you almost knocked me
down! Oh, but it wasn't your fault! Na, I was in the way... But you looked at
me, and you smiled.. Yeah! You smiled right at me as if you meant it! And I
cryed all the way home just 'cause you smiled at me for being in your way.. Oh
I'll never forget it Mr. Gable.. honest injun, your my favorite actor.


I don't care what happens,
let the whole world stop,
As far as I'm concerned you'll always be the top!
'Cause you know you made me love you!
