I'll Know
by Frank Loesser

For I've imagined every bit of him
To the strong moral fiber to the wisdom in his head
To the homey aroma of his pipe

You have wished yourself a Scarsdale Galahad
The breakfast-eating, Brooks-brothers type

And I shall meet him when the time is right

SKY. (spoken) You've got the guy all figured out.
SARAH (spoken) I have.
SKY (spoken) Including what he smokes. All figured out, huh?
SARAH (spoken) All figured out.

I'll know when my love comes along
I won't take a chance
I'll know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance

And you'll know at a glance
By the two-pair of pants

I'll know by the calm steady voice
Those feet on the ground
I'll know as I run to his arms
That at last I've come home safe and sound
Until then, I shall wait
Until then, I'll be strong
Oh, I'll know, when my love comes along

SKY. (spoken) No, no, no! You are talking about love! You can't dope it like that. What are you picking, a guy or a horse?
SARAH (spoken) I wouldn't expect a gambler to understand.
SKY (spoken) Would you like to hear how a gambler feels about the big heartthrob?
SARAH (spoken) No!
SKY (spoken) Well, I'll tell you.

Mine will come as a surprise to me
Mine I leave to chance and chemistry

SARAH (spoken) Chemistry?
SKY (spoken) Yeah, chemistry.

Suddenly I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know then and there
I'll know at the sight of her face
How I care, how I care, how I care
And I'll stop, and I'll stare
And I'll know long before we can speak
I'll know in my heart
I'll know and I won't ever ask
Am I right, am I wise, am I smart?
And I'll stop, and I'll stare
At that face in the throng
Yes, I'll know when my love comes along

I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know, I won't take a chance
I know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance
Until then, I shall wait
And till then, I'll be strong
Oh, I'll know when my love comes along
