Just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy
When he's playing with the choo-choo toy
When I'm with my sweet Lorraine

She's got a pair of eyes
That are bluer than the summer sky
When you see 'em you're gonna realize
Why I love Lorraine

When it's raining I don't miss the sun
'Cause it's in my sweetie's smile
Just to think that I'm the lucky one
Who will lead her down the aisle

Each night how I pray
That nobody steals her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry my Lorraine

When it's raining I never miss the sun
'Cause it's in my sweetie's smile
Just to think that I'm the lucky one
Who's gonna lead her down that well known aisle

Each night I pray
That nobody steals her heart away
Can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry my Lorraine
That's gonna be the day when I marry my Lorraine
