I'M GONNA WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUTA MY HAIR (Richard Rogers / Oscar Hammerstein II) Ella Fitzgerald Also recorded by: Patti Brown; Les Brown; Liz Callaway; Cookie Coleman; Gemma Craven; Bob Crosby; Czech Symphony Orch.; Connie Evingson; Percy Faith; Nellie Forbush; Mitzi Gaynor; Eydie Gormé; Chico Hamilton; Stacey Kent; Bonnie Langford; Peggy Lee; London Theatre Orch.; Mary Martin; The Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre; Royal Philharmonic Orch.; Dinah Shore; Jo Stafford; Fran Warren; The Weather Girls; Bonnie Lou Williams; George Wright. I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, And send him on his way. I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms. I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms, I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms, And send him on his way. Don't try to patch it up. Tear it up, tear it up! Wash him out, dry him out. Push him out, fly him out. Cancel him and let him go! Yeah, sister! I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, And send him on his way. If a man don't understand you, If you fly on separate beams, Waste no time, make a change, Ride that man right off your range. Rub him out of the roll call, And drum him out of your dreams. If you laugh at different comics, If you root for different teams, Waste no time, weep no more, Show him what the door is for. Rub him out of the roll call, And drum him out of your dreams. Oh, no. Oh, no. I'm gonna rub, wash, wave, rub The man right outa my hair I'm gonna rub, wash, wave, rub The man right outa my hair Don't try to patch it up. Tear it up, tear it up! Wash him out, dry him out. Push him out, fly him out. Cancel him and let him go! Yeah, sister! I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, And send him on his way. And send him on his way. I'm gonna send him, send him on his way. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - April 2005) ****** as rec by Mary Martin w Salvatore Dell'Isola's Orch & Chorus (1949 New York Stage Production) I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair And send him on his way! I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms, I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms, I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms And send him on his way! Don't try to patch it up, Tear it up, tear it up! Wash him out, dry him out, Push him out, fly him out! Cancel him and let him go, yea sister! I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair And send him on his way! If a man don't understand you, If you fly on separate beams, Waste no time, make a change, Ride that man right off your range! Drop him outa the roll call And drum him outa your dreams! Oh-ho! If you laugh at different comics, If you root for different teams, Waste no time, weep no more, Show him what the door is for! Drop him outa the roll call And drum him outa your dreams! You can't light a fire when the wood's all wet! No! You can't make a butterfly strong! Uh-huh! You can't fix an egg when it ain't quite good! And you can't fix a man when he's wrong! You can't put back a petal when it falls from a flower, Or sweeten up a fella when he starts turnin' sour! Oh no! Oh no! If his eyes get dull and fishy When you look for glints and gleams, Waste no time, make a switch, Drop him in the nearest ditch! Drop him outa the roll call And drop him outa your dreams! Oh-ho! Oh-ho! I went and washed that man right outa my hair, I went and washed that man right outa my hair, I went and washed that man right outa my hair And sent him on his way! She went and washed that man right out of her hair, She went and washed that man right out of her hair, She went and washed that man right out of her hair And sent him on his way!
