GOOD FOR NOTHIN' (William Engvick / Alec Wilder) Rosemary Clooney & Marlene Dietrich - 1952 BOTH: Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' I never saw a good one yet Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get DIETRICH: He will swear he's seeking Your love for ever more And then he comes home reeking Of perfume you never wore CLOONEY: You'll maybe wanna shoot him But he isn't worth the shot And you can bet the other woman Has found out he's not so hot BOTH: Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' I never saw a good one yet Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get DIETRICH: He says he'll surprise you With diamonds and with mink But the only things he buys you Are a wringer and a sink CLOONEY: He may be full of glamour At the opera in a box But he ain't so darned attractive When you're washin' out his socks BOTH: Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' I never saw a good one yet Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get Their wiley arts, their tender pleas Their fickle hearts, their knobby knees Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' A girl who's smart will leave `em be. Good for nothin' Men are good for nothin' But can we do without 'em, No Sir-eee But can we do without 'em, No sir-eee (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2004)
