lyrics

(words & music by Baker Knight)
When no-one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me love and consolation
You give me hope to carry on

And you're always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you

And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I'm a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything

I guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you

Ray Peterson had a top 40 hit with “The Wonder of You” during 1959. In 1970, Elvis Presley went to Peterson and asked his permission to record the song.
