Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered
Lorenz Hart (w), Richard Rodgers (m)
Pal Joey, 1940
After one whole quart of brandy,
Like a daisy I awake.
With no Bromo Seltzer handy,
I don't even shake.
Men are not a new sensation;
I've done pretty well, I think.
But this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink.
I'm wild again,
Beguiled again,
A simpering, whimpering child again--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
Couldn't sleep,
And wouldn't sleep,
Until I could sleep where I shouldn't sleep--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
Lost my heart but what of it?
My mistake I agree.
He's a laugh, but I love it
because the laugh's on me.
A pill he is,
But still he is
All mine and I'll keep him until he is
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Like me.
Seen a lot--
I mean I lot--
But now I'm like sweet seventeen a lot--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
I'll sing to him,
Each spring to him,
And worship the trousers that cling to him--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
When he talks he is seeking
Words to get off his chest.
Horizontally speaking,
He's at his very best.
Vexed again,
Perplexed again,
Thank God I can be over-sexed again--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
Sweet again,
Petite again,
And on my proverbial seat again--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
What am I?
Half shot am I.
To think that he loves me
So hot am I--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
Though at first we said, "No, sir,"
Now we're two little dears.
You might say we are closer
Than Roebuck is to Sears.
I'm dumb again
And numb again,
A rich, ready, ripe little plum again--
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.
