"I Was Made for You" as written by and Zooey Deschanel....
I was taking a walk
When I saw you pass by
I thought I saw you looking my way
So I thought I'd give you a try

When I saw you smile
I saw a dream come true
So I asked you, maybe, baby
What you going to do?

Because I have been waiting for a long, long time
For a boy like you

I won't be waiting anymore because I know:

Baby! Baby!
I was made for you

I was taking a walk
When I saw you pass by
I thought I saw you looking my way
So I thought I'd give you a try

When I saw you smile
I saw a dream come true
So I asked you, maybe, baby
What you going to do?

Because I have been waiting for a long, long time
For a boy like you

I won't be waiting anymore because I know:

Baby! Baby!
I was made for you

I was made for you
I was made for you
Yeah, I was made for you

I was made for you . . .

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song, i thought she said "i was taking a walk, when i saw you passed OUT"

    i was like, omg? that's terrible.
    but when i listened to it again, i was like, "oh, that makes more sense"

    General Commenthaha two tone beat you nerd thats hilarious:)! could pull out some cute baywatch moves if it were true though!
    i love to skip and prance down my the streets of my small town listening to this song and singing along boisterously!
    highly recommended to those that delight in frightening small animals and children.

    General CommentI love this song. Although it doesn't have a deep meaning, it has this irresistible bouncy, '60's vibe, reminiscent of The Chiffons.
