IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD From the film "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963) (Ernest Gold / Mack David) Mixed Chorus (Film Soundtrack) - 1963 The Shirelles - 1963 Also recorded by: Lena Horne It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world In France the girls wear scanties While on lamb chops they put panties I'm telling you it's a mad, mad, mad, mad world A Japanese named Luey Says the Chinese hate chop suey Without a doubt It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world The only thing you are sure of Is that nothing is sure Have a ball, live it up, only fools give it up Toujours the amour, but toujours So be a happy gaffer, Be a screamer, be a laugher Let boys be gay and say, "What the hey" It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world My dear old Uncle Herman Says that French Toast should be German Jawohl, that's right It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world I know it may sound jerky But in Turkey who eats turkey Yes, yes, confess It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world Out traffic is so congested Mass confusion on wheels But Detroit is adroit, what they'll do in Detroit Is make bigger automobiles So be a happy fellow Be a clown, boy, Punchinello Get off the shelf and enjoy yourself It's a mad, mad, mad, mad It's a mad, it's a mad, it's a mad, it's a mad world! ********** As recorded by The Shirelles: It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world When teenage kids look messed up They will tell you they're all dressed up That's what they claim In this mad, mad, mad, mad world A girl who makes you groovy You call hot stuff, they say cool girl It means the same In this mad, mad, mad, mad world A boy will buy brand new blue jeans And if they fit him just right He'll throw them in the sink Let them soak till they shrink They're not right until they're too tight......Right! Don't try to mastermind it Or discover what's behind it Just scratch your neck and say what the heck It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world Our traffic is so congested Mass confusion on wheels But Detroit is adroit What they'll do in Detroit Is make bigger automobiles......Right! Don't try to understand it How it happened or who planned it Just dance and sing, have yourself a fling in the mad, mad, mad, mad world The only thing you are sure of Is that nothing is sure Have a ball, use it up Only fools give it up Toujours the amour, but toujors......Right! Don't try to mastermind this Or discover what's behind this Just scratch your neck and say what the heck It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world (Transcribed by Mel Priddle & Jean-Marie del Fabbro - Oct 2010)
