"Exactly Like You" as written by and Jimmy/fields Mc Hugh....
I know why I waited
Know why I've been blue
I've been waiting each day
For someone exactly like you

Why should I spend some money
On a show or two
When nobody sings these love songs
Exactly like you

[Chorus:]
You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
You make me understand
These foolish little dreams I'm dreaming
And schemes I'm scheming

Now I know why my mama
She taught me to be true
She knew just around the corner
Was somebody like you

[Chorus]
You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
Baby you make me understand
These foolish little dreams I'm dreaming
And schemes I'm scheming

Now I know why my mama
She taught me to be true
She knew just around the corner
Yes she knew just around the corner
Was somebody like you

    General CommentGod, this song is amazing. I feel like I say that about every song that I comment on on this thing, and I certainly say that about a great many Nina Simone songs. This song is just so ... jazzy ... and the piano work on it is spectacular. Gotta love it. Gotta love it.
