JUST THE WAY I AM (Bobby Troup) as recorded by June Christy with Stan Kenton (piano) 1955 also recorded by Julie London 1958 If perhaps I'd been a little distant, If I'd tried to play a little hard to get, Do you think you might have fallen in love? If I'd been a trifle inconsistent, If I hadn't let you light each cigarette, Do you think you might have fallen in love? And if I'd worn my hair the way you like hair worn, Would I've been more appealing? Had I smiled less sweetly, Just a little indiscreetly, Would I've inspired that "I adore her" feeling? If I'd been a little more attractive, Had my pounding heart not been so overactive, Would you have melted in my arms Like some meek sweet adolescent lamb? what a fool I was to ever dream that someday you could love me Just the way I am! If perhaps I'd been a little distant, If I'd tried to play a little hard to get, Do you think you might have fallen in love? If I'd been a trifle inconsistent, If I hadn't let you light each cigarette, Do you think you might have fallen in love? And if I'd worn my hair the way you like hair worn, Would I've been more appealing? Had I smiled less sweetly, Just a little indiscreetly, Would I've inspired that "I adore her" feeling? If I'd been a little more attractive, Had my pounding heart not been so overactive, Would you have melted in my arms Like some meek sweet adolescent lamb? what a fool I was to ever dream that someday you could love me Just the way I am!
