Something Wonderful (1951)
(m) Richard Rodgers (w) Oscar Hammerstein II (I) Musical: The King and I by Dorothy Sarnoff. Terry Saunders in 1956 Film
This is a man who thinks with his heart,
His heart is not always wise.
This is a man who stumbles and falls, but this is a man who tries.
This is a man you’ll forgive and forgive,
And help protect, as long as you live...
He may not always say what you would have him say.
But now and then he’ll say something wonderful.
The thoughtless things he’ll do will hurt and worry you.
Then all at once he’ll do something wonderful.
He has a thousand dreams that won’t come true.
You know that he believes in them and that’s enough for you.
You’ll always go along, defend him when he’s wrong.
And tell him when he’s strong, he is wonderful.
He’ll always need your love, and so he’ll get your love.
The man who needs your love can be wonderful.
