I'll buy you anything,
Sandals and jeans
Perfume, potato chips
And Movie magazines

I'll buy you roller skates
Suncream from France
Pop corn and crackerjacks
And cotton velvet pants

Tell Me, Tell Me,
Everything you crave
Let me, let me
Play the game of slave.

I'll buy a tape machine
Made for the car
Love beads and comic books
And every candy bar.

Let me, let me
Make you happy now
Tell me, tell me, tell me how.

Let me,let me
Make you happy now
Tell me, tell me, how.

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
