As recorded by Connee Boswell, Aug 22nd 1940 New York: You're nobody's sweetheart now, 'Cause nobody wants you, somehow; Fancy hose, silken gown, You'd be out of place in your own home town! When you walk down that old avenue, I just can't believe that it's you! Painted lips, painted eyes, Wearin' a bird of paradise! Well it all seems wrong somehow, But you're nobody's sweetheart now. You're nobody's sweetheart now, 'Cause nobody wants you, somehow; Fancy hose, silken gown, You'd be out of place in your own home town! When you walk down that old avenue, oh-ho, I just can't believe that it's you! Painted lips, painted eyes, Wearin' a bird of paradise! Well it all seems wrong somehow, But you're nobody's sweetheart now. (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2009) ******************** As recorded by MARION HARRIS, 10th December 1929: You're nobody's sweetheart now They don't baby you, somehow Fancy hose, silken gown You'd be out of place in your own home town When you walk down the avenue I just can't believe that it's you Painted lips, painted eyes Wearing a bird of paradise It all seems wrong somehow That you're nobody's sweetheart now You were everybody's sweetheart Not so long ago And in your hometown, each boy around Longed to be your beau But things are different today I'm mighty sorry to say You're nobody's sweetheart now They don't baby you, somehow Fancy hose, silken gown You'd be out of place in your own home town When you walk down the avenue I just can't believe that it's you Painted lips, painted eyes Wearing a bird of paradise It all seems wrong somehow That you're nobody's sweetheart now (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2017) ******************** Alternate middle verse as recorded by JACK TEAGARDEN: You turned me down and then you went away There's nothing left for me to do, but play Forget you done me wrong I'll play a tune or sing a song You're nobody's etc.......
