I'VE GOT "IT" (BUT IT DON'T DO ME NO GOOD) From the film "Young Man Of Manhattan" (1930) (Sammy Fain / Irving Kahal / Pierre Norman) Ginger Rogers (Film Soundtrack) - 1930 Helen Kane - 1930 Annette Hanshaw - 1930 As recorded by HELEN KANE with Leonard Joy & His Band July 1st 1930, New York: Every time I get a brand new sweetie, I'm up in the clouds and I'm flyin' high! Then my boyfriend, he gets a brand new sweetie; You know, I don't seem to get a break, I wonder why! I'm a lonesome little babe in the wood, oo-ooh! I got "It", but it don't do me no good! You know, I can't hold a man the way that I should, oo-ooh! I got "It", huh, but it don't do me no good! I know I'm young and I'm so ambitious, but why should I waste my charms? I got a lot of lovin', but who's got the lips and arms? Oh! I'm a girl that's been so misunderstood, oo-ooh! Oh, I got "It", huh, but it don't do me no good! I'm a little lonesome Red Riding Hood, I got "It", but it don't do me a bit o' good! 'Cause Mister Wolf don't play the way that he should! I got "It", but it don't do me no good! I'm like barrel of rare old sherry, I'm longing to meet my fate! I want somebody to marry, but who wants to dissipate? Oh! I'm afraid that I might age in the wood! Boo-hoo-hoo! Oh, I got "It", but it don't do me no good,huh, Boop-oop-a-doop! ******************** As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW with her Sizzlin' Syncopators: Every time I get a brand new sweetie I'm up in the clouds, I'm flyin' high Then the boyfriend takes a sweeter sweetie I don't seem to get a break, I wonder why I'm a lonesome little babe in the wood, hmm-hmm I've got "It", but it don't do me no good I can't hold a man the way that I should, hmm-hmm I've got "It", but it don't do me no good I know that I'm young and so ambitious, why should I waste my charms I've got a lot of lovin', who's got the lips and arms I'm a gal that's just been misunderstood, hmm-hmm I've got "It", but it don't do me no good Yes, I've got "It", but it don't do me no good, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh I'm a lonesome little Red Riding Hood, Mister Wolf won't play the way that he should, no no I've got "It", but it don't do me no good I'm like barrel of rare old sherry, longin' to meet its fate I want somebody to marry, who wants to dissipate Ooh, I'm afraid that I might age in the wood I know that I've got "It", but it don't do me no good (Orchestral Interlude) Ev'ry sweetie had me knockin' on wood, huh-huh I've got "It", but it don't do me no good They don't linger long in my neighbourhood, oh, I don't know what's the matter 'Cause I've got "It", but it don't do me no good Now, I could go for his gentle meekness, masculine company I'm longing for a weakness that'll be done for me I'm afraid I've told you more than I should, ah-hum I've got "It", but it don't do me no good (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009) (Updated by Mel Priddle - June 2014)
