A you're adorable
B You're so beautiful
C you're a cutie full of charms.
D you're a darling and
E you're exciting and
F you're a feather in my arms.
G you look good to me
H you're so heavenly
I you're the one I idolize
J we're like Jack and Jill
K you're so kissable
L you're the love light in my eyes.

M, N, O, P, I could go on all day
Q, R, S, T, alphabetically speaking, You're OK!

U make my life complete
V means you're very sweet
W, W, Y, Z

Oh, I love to wander through
The alphabet with you
To tell you what you mean to me!

I don't know why the Indiana University Sheet Music has copies of this visible online, since they don't normally display music that is still under copyright, but here it is:

A - YOU'RE ADORABLE (THE ALPHABET SONG)
Words and Music by Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise, Sidney Lippman
New York: Laurel Music Co., 1948.

VERSE: When Johnny Jones was serenading Mary,
He sure could quote a lot of poetry
But he'd much rather tell 'er
What he learned in his speller
When they both attended P. S. Thirty-three:

CHORUS: A, you're adorable,
B, you're so beautiful,
C, you're a cutie full o' charms
D, you're a darling,
and E, you're exciting,
and F, you're a feather in my arms.
G, you look good to me,
H, you're so heavenly,
I, you're the one I idolize,
J, we're like Jack and Jill,
K, you're so kissable,
L, is the love-light in your eyes.
M, N, O, P, I could go on all day.
Q, R, S, T, alphabetic'ly speaking you're okay!
U made my life complete.
V means you're very sweet.
Double-U, X, Y, Z.
It's fun to wander through
The alphabet with you
To tell you what you mean to me!

For the record, Lippman wrote the music. The other two managed between them to fashion the lyric.

Perry Como recorded the song on Lippman's birthday.

Copies of the original sheet music are available online for 10 bucks (or as we brits call them, dollars).at the-forum.com/EPHEMERA/music.

And just been listening to I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo which has the line

"A B E D E F G H I got a gal etc."
