Actress and singer Zooey Deschanel has cornered the market on cuteness. Whether it be on film, in 500 Days of Summer, or on record in hipster supergroup She & Him, she can always make you smile. Joining forces with comedian Ben Schwartz, she continues her quiet march to world domination with a cover of “Tonight You Belong to Me.”

Though first written in 1926, the song is most familiar now as the one sung by Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters in 1979’s The Jerk. Zooey strums her ukulele and the couple harmonize beautifully in this remarkably sweet cover. Check it out below (via Zooey’s female-oriented entertainment website HelloGiggles).
