And I never knew technique of kissin', I never knew thrill I could get from your touch, Never knew much, Oh,! look at me now! And I'm a new man, Better than Casanova at his best; With a new heart, A brand new start, I'm so proud I'm bustin' my vest! So I'm the guy who turned down a lover. So I'm the guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings, One o' those things, Oh, look at me now! Oh, look at me now! I'm a new man, Better than Casanova at his best; With a new heart, A brand new start, I'm so proud I'm bustin' my vest! So, I'm the guy who turned down a lover. So I'm the guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings, One o' those things, Oh, look at me now! Oh, look at me now! Oh, look at me - now! ******************** OH LOOK AT ME NOW as rec by Lee Wiley w Bobby Hacket (cornet) & Joe Bushkin's Swinging Strings Dec 14th 1950 New York I'm not the girl who cared about money, I'm not the girl who cared about fortunes and such, Never cared much; Oh, look at me now! I never knew a rhinestone for rubies, i never knew a mink from a sable or seal, Phoneys from real; Oh, look at me now! Got a new man, What a man! He's no handsome Errol Flynn! I like his face, And his bank is Chase! Half a million dollars ain't tin! For I'm the girl longed for a cottage, So I'm the girl who's got an estate with a gate, I'm doin' great! Oh, look at me now! He gives me cheques, Brand new cheques, I've got more than I deserve! I sleep till two, Then what do I do? Pour the wine and serve the hors d'ouvres! For I'm the gal who's married to Wall Street, Yes I'm the gal who's worth about five hundred g's, At which don't sneeze, Oh, look at me now, Oh, look at me now!
