THE STYLE TO WHICH I'M ACCUSTOMED Dorothy Shay (?) Youíre wanting me to marry you, and so Before I give my answer, I must know, Will you treat me in the style to which Iím accustomed If I agree to be your loving spouse, For my training has been gentle, in a manner Continental So youíll have to get them goats out of the house. Will you stay the same old way to which Iím accustomed, Fastidious as only you can be, For thereís not the slightest doubt you have a certain air about you, Especially when you wear that DDT. (Bridge) Anything plebeian is like Greek to me My background has been one of great ťclat. So youíd better watch your grammar when you speak to me- Just remember it is I to whom youíre speaking at. Will you treat me in the style to which Iím accustomed, Remain the same old Casanova type For I never knew what bliss is Ďtil you thrilled me with your kisses But I wish youíd try it once without your pipe. (2) Will you treat me in the style to which Iím accustomed, With furs and diamonds fit for any queen For you really did enslave me with that diamond ring you gave me But the second day my arm was turning green. Will you treat me in the style to which Iím accustomed And comfort me and calm my girlish fears, For Iím very, very fragile, so you mustnít be too agile, Or I may be forced to batten down your ears. Bridge The years I spent in Paris were so gay to me The language is my special pride and joy So if you should say "Parlais Vous Francais" to me Well you might think that Iím a native when I answer, "Oui" (ďoyĒ) Will you treat me in the style to which Iím accustomed, For wealth is really all Iíve ever known Yes, my life was milk and honey; we had barrels full of money ĎCause my father used to always print his own. And when the cops got father, he whispered with a smile, Get someone to keep you to keep you - To keep you in your customary style. (Contributed by Lee Sartain - December 2007)
