I don't care if there's powder on my nose. I don't care if my hairdo is in place. I've lost the very meaning of repose. I never put a mudpack on my face. Oh, who'd have thought that I'd walk in a daze now? I never go to shows at night, but just to matinees now. I see the show and home I go.
Once I laughed when I heard you saying that I'd be playing solitaire, uneasy in my easy chair. It never entered my mind.
Once you told me I was mistaken, that I'd awaken with the sun and order orange juice for one. It never entered my mind.
You have what I lack myself and now I even have to scratch my back myself.
Once you warned me that if you scorned me I'd sing the maiden's prayer again and wish that you where there again to get into my hair again. It never entered my mind.
Lyrics: Lorenz Hart Music: Richard Rodgers From the Broadway musical comedy, HIGHER AND HIGHER. Opened at the Shubert Theater, New York City on April 4, 1940. Director: Joshua Logan
