BOY! WHAT LOVE HAS DONE TO ME fr "Girl Crazy" 1930 musical New York George Gershwin (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1930 as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Nelson Riddle & his Orch July 15th 1959 Hollywwod I fetch his slippers, Fill up the pipe he smokes! I cook the kippers, Laugh at his oldest jokes! Yet here I anchor, I might have had a banker! Boy! What love has done to me! His nature's funny, Quarrelsome half the time! And as for money, He hasn't got a dime! And here's the joker, I might have had a broker! Boy! What love has done to me! When a guy looks my way, Does he get emphatic? Say he gets dramatic! I just wanna fly 'way, But if I left him I'd be all at sea! I'm just a slavey, Life is a funny thing! He's got the gravy, I got a wedding ring! And still I love him, There's nobody above him! Boy! What love has done to me! His brains are minus, Never a thought in sight! And yet his highness Lectures me day and night! Oh, where was my sense To sign that wedding license? Boy! What love has done to me! My life he's wrecking, Bet you coukld find him now, Out somewhere necking Somebody else's frau! You get to know life When married to a lowlife! Boy! What love has done to me! I can't hold my head up; The butcher, the baker All know he's a faker! Brother, I am fed up, But if I left him he'd be up a tree! Where will it wind up? I don't know where I'm at! I make my mind up, I oughta leave him flat! But I have grown so I love the dirty so and so! Boy! What love has done to me!
