MY SUGAR IS SO REFINED (Sidney Lippman / Sylvia Dee) Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers - 1946 Tony Pastor & His Orch. - 1946 Nat King Cole Trio - 1946 Doris Day - 1947 The Hi-Lo's - 1957 Also recorded by: Peggy Lee; The Ravens. My sugar is so refined He's one o' them high-class kind He doesn't wear a hat, he wears a chapeau He goes to see a cinema, but never a show My sugar is so refined He's got a real high-class mind He never buys a dress, it's always a frock He always winds his timepiece up, but never his clock He says "tomahto" instead of "tomayto" He says "potahto" instead of "potayto" Well, you should see how he holds a cup of tea Just two fingers while he sticks out three My sugar is so refined He's one o' them high-class kind He never shares a kiss, he lets our lips unite But, oh, it feels like kissin' and each kiss is dynamite I wonder what he thinks of each time I hold him tight Oh, he's so refined (Orchestral Break) He says "banahna" instead of "bananna" He says "piahno" instead of "pianna" And you should see how he sits on his settee With cake and coffee balanced on one knee My sugar is so refined He's one o' them high-class kind He never shares a kiss, he lets our lips unite But, oh, it feels like kissin' and each kiss is dynamite I wonder what he thinks of each time I hold him tight Oh, he's so refined Oh, he's so refined My sugar is so refined (Transcribed from Doris Day's radio recording by Mel Priddle - March 2005) ***** ALTERNATE VERSES: My sugar is so refined He's one o' them high-class kind He never says "goodbye", it's always "farewell" He always says "magnificent", he never says "swell" My sugar is so refined He's got a real high-class mind He never eats a meal, he dines or he sups And dogs are little canine friends, they're never just pups My sugar is so refined He's one o' them high-class kind He acts just like his name is Mister Van Der Loon And though I love my sugar, and though we'll marry soon I bet that he'll read Shakespeare the whole darn honeymoon Oh, he's so refined *****
