1992 Broadway revival
Guys and Dolls The Musical - I'll Know Lyrics


SARAH:
For I've imagined every bit of him
To the strong moral fiber to the wisdom in his head
To the home-y aroma of his pipe

SKY:
You have wished yourself a Scarsdale Galahad
The breakfast-eating, Brooks-brothers type.

SARAH:
Yes, and I shall meet him when the time is right.

SKY: (spoken)
You've got the guy all figured out.
SARAH: (spoken)
I have.
SKY: (spoken)
Including what he smokes. All figured out, huh?
SARAH: (spoken)
All figured out.

SARAH:
I'll know when my love comes along
I won't take a change.
I'll know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance.

SKY:
And you'll know at a glance by the two-pair of pants.

SARAH:
I'll know by the calm steady voice
Those feet on the ground.
I'll know as I run to his arms
That at last I've come home safe and sound.
Until then, I shall wait.
Until then, I'll be strong.
Oh, I'll know, when my love comes along.

SKY: (spoken)
No, no, no! You are talking about love!
You can't dope it like that.
What are you picking, a guy or a horse?
SARAH: (spoken)
I wouldn't expect a gambler to understand.
SKY: (spoken)
Would you like to hear how a gambler feels about the big heart throb?
SARAH: (spoken)
No!
SKY: (spoken)
Well, I'll tell you.

SKY:
Mine will come as a surprise to me.
Mine I lead to chance and chemistry.

SARAH: (spoken)
Chemistry?
SKY: (spoken)
Yeah, chemistry.

SKY:
Suddenly I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know then and there
I'll know at the sight of her face
How I care, how I care, how I care
And I'll stop. And I'll stare.

And I'll know long before we can speak
I'll know in my heart.
I'll know and I won't ever ask
Am I right, am I wise, am I smart.
And I'll stop. And I'll stare.
At that face. In the throng.
Yes, I'll know when my love comes along
I'll know
When my love comes along.

SARAH:
I'll know. I won't take a chance.
I know he'll be just what I need
Not some fly-by-night Broadway romance.
Until then, I shall wait.
And till then, I'll be strong.
Oh, I'll know when my love comes along
