WHAT WOULDN'T I DO FOR THAT MAN? Featured in the films "Applause" and "Glorifying the American Girl" (1929) (E.Y. Harburg / Jay Gorney) Helen Morgan (Film Soundtracks) - 1929 Annette Hanshaw - 1929 Ruth Etting - 1929 Frankie Trumbauer & His Orch. (vocal: Smith Ballew) - 1929 Lee Morse (feat in the short film "A Million Me's") - 1930 As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW: Love was blind to me, now it's kind to me Love has opened my eyes Since it came to me, life's a game to me With the sweetest surprise I never knew how good it was to be A slave to one who means the world to me I loved that man from the start And way down deep in his heart I know he loves me, Heaven knows why And when he tells me he can't live without me What wouldn't I do for that man? He's not an angel or saint And what's the odds if he ain't With all his faults I know he'll get by I'll be so true to him, he'll never doubt me What wouldn't I do for that man? Oh, when he lets me lean my, my weary head on his shoulder I close my eyes right there and wish I never grow older I'll never leave him alone I'll make his troubles my own I love that man as nobody can I'm just no good when his arms are about me What wouldn't I do for that man? Oh, what wouldn't I do for that man? (Instrumental Break) I'll never leave him alone I'll make his troubles my own I love that man better than I do myself I'm just no good when his arms are about me What wouldn't I do for that man? Oh, there's not a thing I wouldn't do for my man That's all! ******************** As performed by LEE MORSE in the 1930 short film "A Million Me's": Life was blind to me, now it's kind to me Love has opened my eyes Since it came to me, love is a game to me With the sweetest surprise I never knew how good it was to be A slave to one who's all the world to me I loved that man from the start And way down deep in his heart I know he loves me, Heaven knows why And when he tells me he can't live without me What wouldn't I do for that man? He's not an angel or saint What's the odds that he ain't With all his faults I know we'll get by I'll be so true to him, he'll never doubt me What wouldn't I do for that man? If I could only rest my weary head on his shoulder I'd close my eyes right there and wish I'd never grow older I'll never leave him alone I'll make his troubles my own I love that man like nobody can It's just too bad when his arms are about me What wouldn't I do for that man? Oh-oh, what wouldn't I do for that man? I'll always call him my own I'll make his troubles my own I'll love that man like nobody can It's just too bad when his arms are about me What wouldn't I do for that man? It's just too bad when his arms are about me What wouldn't I do for that man? (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
