Lyrics

[Intro]
Uh, do I feel happy in life?

[Verse 1]
The end, I move back in
Before you knew it, I cheated on him
Oh yeah, that's what happens when you don't try
You know I always thought about him
Even when the other boys sneak in
But infidelity would never even cross my mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Wonderful, so wonderful
But, boy, don't get too comfortable
'Cause what we have's untouchable, I, I, I
I stood deaf till I stood dead
Untied a knot in my wedding dress
He got down on one knee and he said

[Chorus]
You love I?
You love I?
You love I?
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Post-Chorus]
Uh, do I feel happy in life?

[Verse 2]
Oh oh, I move back out
He invited me into his fancy house
It's been so long we might as well try

[Pre-Chorus]
Wonderful, so wonderful
You turned my heart into a puppet show
If you like me, please, let me know, I, I, I
One day, the very first date
He walked on over and he asked my name
He could be the one to say

[Chorus]
You love I?
You love I?
You love I?
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Refrain]
I love you
I love you
I love you
I do, I do, I do, I do

[Outro]
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?
You love I?
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?

[Intro]
Uh, do I feel happy in life?

[Verse 1]
The end, I move back in
Before you knew it, I cheated on him
Oh yeah, that's what happens when you don't try
You know I always thought about him
Even when the other boys sneak in
But infidelity would never even cross my mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Wonderful, so wonderful
But, boy, don't get too comfortable
'Cause what we have's untouchable, I, I, I
I stood deaf till I stood dead
Untied a knot in my wedding dress
He got down on one knee and he said

[Chorus]
You love I?
You love I?
You love I?
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Verse 2]
Uh oh, I move back out
He invited me into his fancy house
It's been so long we might as well try
You know, I always thought about him
Tried to move slow, and then love sneaks in
But moving in together wouldn't ever cross my mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Wonderful, so wonderful
You turned my heart into a puppet show
If you like me, please let me know, I, I, I
One day, the very first date
He walked on over and he asked my name
He could be the one to say

[Chorus]
You love I?
You love I?
You love I?
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Refrain]
I love you
I love you
I love you
I do, I do, I do, I do

[Outro]
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?
You love I?
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?

Trivia

    • This is one of two known songs by Melanie that includes a back-masked message in it, the other being "Teddy Bear."
  • The second version of this song was made in the same sessions as "Dead to Me."
  • When the latest version of this song was made, Melanie was unsatisfied with it and used the first version as the final version instead. The first version is what she played on the Dollhouse Tour and was the version posted by Warner/Chappell Music after it was scrapped.
