A song written for the 1928 musical "Good Boy", but the person who made this song really popular was Marlyn Monroe, who sang it in the classic comedy Some Like It Hot, in which Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis pretend to be women because they are running away from some gansters who want to kill them. 

This song was chosen as one of the Songs of the Century in a survey made by the RIAA in which 200 people responded (out of 1300 asked).


I wanna be loved by you
Just you, nobody else but you
I wanna be loved by you alone
