Both of us in the same place at the same time?

You've gotta admit...' 'Admit?'

'I've got beginner's luck - the first time that I'm in love I'm in love with you... Gosh I'm lucky!

I've got beginner's luck, there never was such a smile or such eyes of blue!

Gosh, I'm fortunate!

For this time is the one... where the first time is the last time!

I've got beginner's luck!

Lucky through and through... For the first time that I'm in love I'm in love with you!

'Get off.'

[Laughter] 'No sir, please don't!'
