  • You make me laugh
    Cause your eyes, they light the night
    They look right though me.
    You bashful boy
    You're hiding something sweet
    Please give it to me, yeah, to me.

    Oh, oh
    Talk to me some more
    You don't have to go
    You're the Poetry Man
    You make things all rhyme.

    You are a genie
    And all I ask for is your smile
    Each time I rub the lamp.
    When I am with you
    I have a giggling teen-age crush
    Then I'm a sultry vamp.

    Oh, oh, talk to me some more
    You don't have to go
    ('Cos) You're the Poetry Man
    You make things all rhyme.

    So once again
    It's time to say, "So long,"
    And so recall the lull of life.
    You're going home now
    Home's that place somewhere you go each day
    To see your wife.

    Oh, oh
    Talk to me some more
    You know that you don't have to go
    You're the Poetry Man
    You make things all rhyme.
