"Dear Mr. Gable (You Made Me Love You)" as written by Robert M. Merkin, Colin Romoff, Roger Edens, James V. Jimmy Monaco and Joseph Mccarthy....
Dear Mr. Gable
I am writing this to you
And I hope that you will read it so you'll know
My heart beats like a hammer
And I stutter and I stammer
Every time I see you at the picture show
I guess I'm just another fan of yours
And I thought I'd write and tell you so

You made me love you
I didn't wanna do it
I didn't wanna do it
You made me love you
And all the time you knew it
I guess you always knew it
You made me happy
Sometimes you made me glad
But there were times, sir
You made me feel so sad
You made me sigh, 'cause
I didn't wanna tell you
I didn't wanna tell you
I think you're grand, that's true
Yes, I do, 'deed I do, you know I do
I must tell you what I'm feeling
The very mention of your name
Sends my heart reeling
You know you made me love you!

Aw, gee, Mr. Gable
I don't wanna bother you!
Guess you got a lotta girls
That tell you the same thing
And if you don't wanna read this
Well, you don't have to
But I just had to tell you about the time
I saw you in "It Happened One Night,"
That was the first time I ever saw you
And I knew right then you were
The nicest fella in the movies!
I guess it was 'cause you acted so, well
So natural like - not like a real actor at all
But just like any fella you'd meet at school or at a party
Then one time I saw you in a picture
With Joan Crawford
And I had to cry a little, 'cause
You loved her so much and you couldn't have her
Not till the end of the picture, anyway

And then one time I saw you in person
You were making a personal appearance at the theatre
And I was standing there when you got out of your car
And you almost knocked me down!
Oh - but it wasn't your fault!
Naw, I was in the way
But you looked at me, and you smiled
Yeah! You smiled right at me as if you meant it
And I cried all the way home
Just 'cause you smiled at me for being in your way!
Aw, I'll never forget it, Mr. Gable
Honest, you're my favorite actor!

I don't care what happens
Let the whole world stop
As far as I'm concerned
You'll always be the top
'Cause you know you made me love you!
