GIVE HIM THE OOH-LA-LA fr "Dubarry Was A Lady" 1939 musical sb Ethel Merman Cole Porter 1939 as rec by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) w Ray Brown (bass) Herb Ellis (guitar) and Jo Jones (drums) Sept 1957 Say you're fond of fancy things, Diamond clips and emerald rings, And you want your man to come through, Give him the ooh-la-la! When your car is asked to stop By a handsome traffic cop, Lest you want a ticket or two, Give him the ooh-la-la! If Napoleon at Waterloo-la-la Had an army of debutantes To give the British the well-known ooh-la-la, He'd have changed the history of France! When your favourite Romeo Grabs his hat and starts to go, Don't reveal the fact that you're blue, Don't break down and start to boo-hoo! There's just one thing for you-la-la to-la-la do-la-la; Like Tallulah, Just give him the ooh-la-la! If Napoleon at Waterloo-la-la Had an army of debutantes To give the British the well-known ooh-la-la, He'd have changed the history of France! When your favourite Romeo Grabs his hat and starts to go, Don't reveal the fact that you're blue, Don't break down and start to boo-hoo! There's just one thing for you-la-la to-la-la do-la-la; Like Tallulah, Just give him the ooh-la-la! The ooh-la-la! The ooh-la-la! You'd better be like Tallulah, Don't be a fool-ah, Give him the ooh-la-la! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2011)
