Crystals — He's Sure The Boy I Love lyrics

(Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil)

Spoken:
Always dreamed the boy I love would come along
And he'd be tall and handsome, rich and strong.
Now, that boy I love has come to me
But he sure ain't the way I thought he'd be.

(Sha-la-la-la-la, hey hey hey
Sha-la-la-la-la, hey hey hey
Sha-la-la-la-la, hey hey hey
He's sure the boy I love)

He doesn't look like a movie star
He doesn't drive a Cadillac car
He sure ain't the boy I've been dreaming of but
He's sure the boy I love

Let me tell ya now
He'd never be a big businessman
He always buys on the installment plan
He sure ain't the boy I've been dreaming of but
He's sure the boy I love

When he holds me tight,
Everything's right
Crazy as it seems
I'm his, whatever he is,
And I forget all of my dreams
And everybody knows

He doesn't hang diamonds round my neck, oh-oh
And all he's got's an unemployment check
He sure ain't the boy I've been dreaming of but
He's sure the boy I love

Instrumental bridge

When he holds me tight,
Everything's right
Crazy as it seems
I'm his, whatever he is,
And I forget all of my dreams
Oh-oh-oh-oh

He doesn't hang diamonds round my neck
And all he's got's an unemployment check
He sure ain't the boy I've been dreaming of but
He's sure the boy I love

He's sure the boy I love
He's sure the boy I love
(repeat and fade out)
