"Teresa" as written by Jack Hoffman and Babe Russin....
Why am I always yearning for Teresa
When there is Peggy, Margarite and Mary Jane
Why does my heart keep burnin' for Teresa
When I know that lovin' her is all in vain
Oh. Peggy is delightful, and Margarite is sweet
And a little smile from Mary Jane can make my day complete
Nevertheless there's only one I dream of
Teresa, Teresa my love.

Why is he always yearning for Teresa
When we have charms and we have arms to love him so, love him so
Why does his heart keep burning for Teresa
When we'd give all the world just to have him alone for our beau
Whenever we are near him our hearts begin to dance
For he looks at us so tenderly that we think we stand a chance
Nevertheless there's only one he dreams of
Teresa, Teresa his love.

Why am I always yearning for Teresa
When there are other girls that I can be around
Oh how I hate to hear that name Teresa
What's she got that I have not I'd like to know

Oh. Peggy is delightful, and Margarite is sweet
And a little smile from Mary Jane can make my day complete
In spite of it all there's only one he dreams of
Teresa
Teresa my love.

I haven't found the answer, and chances are I might
If he knew the way to capture her, his future would be bright
Nevertheless there's only one we dream of
Teresa

No one but Teresa
Teresa, Teresa my love
