I Like You

Carrie Lynn2 Comments
By Sandol Stoddard Warburg

I like you
And I know why
I like you because
You are a good person
To like

I like you because

When I tell you something special
You know it's special
And you remember it
A long long time

You say
Remember when you told me
Something special

And both of us remember

When I think something is important
You think it's important to

We have good ideas
When I say something funny
You laugh

I think I'm funny and
you think I'm funny too
Hah-hah
I like you because
You know where I'm ticklish
And you don't tickle me there
except
Just a little tiny bit
sometimes

stop
stop stop
help
help
But if you do then I know where to tickle you too
HELP

You know how to be silly
That's why I like you

Boy are you ever silly

I never met anybody sillier than me
till I met you

I like you because
You know when it's time to stop being silly

Maybe day after tomorrow
Maybe never

Oops too late
it's quarter past silly

We fool around the same way all the time

If I am a goofus on the roofus
Hollering my head off
You are one too

If I pretend to be drowning
You pretend you are saving me
That's because
You really like me

You really like me
Don't you

And I really like you back
And you like me back
And I like you back

And that's the way we keep on going
Every day

If you go away
then I go away too
Or if I stay home
You send me a postcard
You don't just say
Well see you around
Some time
Bye
I like you a lot
because of that

If I go away
I send you a postcard too

And I like you because
If we go away together
And if we are in Grand Central Station
And if I get lost
Then you are the one that is yelling for me

Hey where are you
Here I am
And I like you because
When I am feeling sad
You don't always cheer me up right away

Sometimes it's better to be sad
You can't stand the others being so googly and gaggly
every single minute

You want to think about things
It takes time

I like you because if I am mad at you
Then you are mad at me too
It's awful when the other person isn't
Phooey

They are so nice and hoo-hoo you could just about
punch them in the nose

I like you because if I think I am going to
throw up then you are really sorry

You don't just pretend you are busy looking at
the birdies and all that

You say maybe it was something you ate
You say the same thing happened to me one time
And the same thing did

If you find two four-leaf clovers
You give me one

If I find four
I give you two

If we only find three
We keep on looking

Sometimes we have good luck
And sometimes we don't
I like you because
I don't know why but
Everything that happens
Is nicer with you

I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then

I like you because because because
I forget why I like you
But I do

So many reasons

On the Fourth of July I like you because
It's the Fourth of July
On the Fifth of July
I like you too

If you and I had some drums
And some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some
Flags and some fire-engines

We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE

See what I mean?

Even if it was the
nine-hundred-and-ninety-
ninth of July
Even if it was August

Even it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January

I would go on choosing you

And you would go on choosing me

Over and over again
That's how it would happen every time

I don't know why
I guess I don't know why I like you really

Why do I like you

I guess I just like you

I guess I just like you

Because I like you



Happy One Year Anniversary, Scott!
(I like you because even though I have three stress zits on my chin, and my hair was greasy this morning, you still rolled over and said:
"you're my one year bride")
