I LOVE WHAT I'M DOING from 1949 New York musical "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" click here for tracks from the film version (Jule Styne (m) Leo Robin (l) 1949) Yvonne Adair (original cast) with Orchestra conducted by Milton Rosenstock You boys play For the love of the game; You get no pay, And I'm just the same! I have my fun, Though my funds are low, But come what may, I won't turn pro! I love what I'm doin' When I'm doin' it for love, The kick that I get is my reward! If a boy is not a spender, I'm inclined to be more tender, And believe you me, I'm never bored! I get more thrill spending my evenings In a quiet spot for two Than in a penthouse high above. If I had a palm that itches, I could go from rags to riches, But I love what I'm doin' When I'm doin' it for love! I love what I'm doin' When I'm doin' it for love, I know ev'ry bench in Central Park! If the lad who comes a-wooing Wants to take me out canoeing, It's the greatest thing since Noah's Ark! And if a guy takes me out driving And his motor car breaks down, I roll up my sleeves and help him shove! But I'm really in my heyday If he wants ten bucks till payday, 'CauseI love what I'm doin' When I'm doin' it for love, for love! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - November 2013)
