FOOLIN' WITH THE OTHER WOMAN'S MAN From the film "Now I'll Tell" (1934) (Harry Akst / Lew Brown) Alice Faye (Film Soundtrack) - 1934 Smith Ballew & His Orch. (vocal: Kay Weber) - 1934 Also recorded by: Sophie Tucker [for some reason, this version credits Milton Ager and Jack Yellen as the songwriters] As performed by ALICE FAYE in the 1934 film "Now I'll Tell": Stolen sweets are sweeter That's the thought of every cheater In the game of love Worthless words are spoken And a lifelong tie is broken In the name of love Each stolen kiss and each caress May mean a moment's happiness Just that and nothing more What does the future hold in store Headaches, heartaches, nerves you can't control Conscience, conscience, tugging at your soul That's what makes you wish you hadn't started Fooling with the other woman's man Scandal, scandal, it's all over town Gossip, gossip, starts to wear you down Ev'rybody knew you'd be outsmarted Fooling with the other woman's man To satisfy a vain desire Just like a moth you play with fire Another fool, another sinner Although you know there's never been a winner Shiver, shiver, you're without a friend, Oh, weary river, that may be the end Ten to one you'll wind up brokenhearted No one's won out since the world began Fooling with the other woman's man (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2017) ******************** as rec by Sophie Tucker Stolen sweets are sweeter, That's the thought of every cheater In the game of love. Worthless words are spoken, And a lifelong tie is broken In the name of love. Each stolen kiss and each caress May mean a moment's happiness; Just that and nothing more, But what does the future hold in store? Headaches, heartaches, nerves you can't control! Punches, hunches, tugging at your soul! That's what makes you wish you hadn't started Fooling with the other woman's man! Sacandal, scandal, it's all over town! Gossip, gossip, starts to wear you down! It's a cinch you're going to be outsmarted When you're fooling with the other woman's man! To satisfy a vain desire, Just like a moth you play with fire! Anothr fool, another sinner, You know darned well there's never, never been a winner! Shiver, shiver, you're without a friend, Oh yes, yes it's the river, that's where you're bound to end! Ten to one you'll wind up broken-hearted When you're fooling with the other woman's man! It's eight o'clock, you hurry to Your favourite little rendezvous; A hideaway, and there on view Are others who are hiding too! It's a fool's paradise! A gaga girl sits over there, Angelic face and baby's stare, Engrossed in her new love affair Without a worry or a thought or care In this fool's paradise! A curtain car that must be (xxx?) To make you feel that you're secure! A quick embrace, then out of sight, Home again to another night; Of headaches, heartaches, nerves you can't control! Punch, punch, tugging at your soul! Believe me, no-ones's won out since the world began When you're fooling with the other woman's man! (Contributed by Peter Akers - October 2009)
