WHY DID SHE FALL FOR THE LEADER OF THE BAND (Jimmy Kennedy / Michael Carr) Billy Cotton & his Band, V. Alan Breeze She used to love me until I took her to a dance She used to love me, but now Iíve lost my big romance She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band She fell completely, she had to have his autograph And very sweetly she handed me the horseís laugh She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band She said, ďWait for meĒ, I lit a cigarette If Iíd waited there, Iídíve been waiting yet Iím broken-hearted, now music only makes me wince We never parted because Iíve never seen her since She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band (Contributed by Bill Huntley - July 2007) ***************************************** as rec by Gracie Fields 1936 Poor Albert! Never mind love, you learn to play a mouth organ! Come on now, buck up! our brother Albert was crazy on a girl, On Boxing Night he took her to a dance; She lost her heart to the leader of the band, And Albert simply didn't have a chance! She is mad about her crooning Romeo, And this is brother Albert's tale of woe; She used to love me until I took her to a dance, She used to love me, but now I've lost me good romance! She was a good girl, and I can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? She fell completely, she had to have his autograph, And very sweetly, she handed me the horse's laugh! She was a good girl, and I can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? She said, "Wait for me!", I lit a cigarette; If I'd waited there, well I'd've been waiting yet! I'm broken hearted, now music only makes me wince, We never parted, because I've never seen her since! She was a good girl, and I can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? Each night she knows that her idol's on the air, She parks herself beside the radio; Nobody moves her, you bet your life on that, Because if they did she'd tell 'em where to go! She listens with such rapture in her eyes, And sits and sighs and sighs and sighs and sighs! She loves his music, she loves his rhythm and his swing; Without his music, the BBC don't mean a thing! She's such good girl, and we can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? She listens daily, and she's been doin' it for years, But his announcements are all she ever hears! She's such nice girl, and we can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? Once she used to love a highbrow music man, But that's over now, 'cause she's a rhythm fan! I bet she'd know him if she should meet him face to face, 'Cause in her bedroom, his photo's all around the place! She's such nice girl, and we can never understand, Why did she fall for the leader of the band? Why did she fall for the leader of the band? (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011) ***************************************** WHY DID SHE FALL FOR THE LEADER OF THE BAND? From the film "She Shall Have Music" (1935) Jack Hylton & His Orch. (vocal: Leslie Carew - Film Soundtrack) - 1935 Jack Hylton & His Orch. (vocal: Jack Cooper & Anne Shelton) - 1936 Max Bygraves - 1976 JACK COOPER: She used to love me, until I took her to a dance She used to love me, but now I've lost my big romance She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band? She fell completely, she had to get his autograph And very sweetly she handed me the horse's laugh She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band? She said, "Wait for me", I lit a cigarette If I'd waited there, I'd'a been waiting yet I'm brokenhearted, now music only makes me wince We never parted, because I've never seen her since She was a good girl and I can never understand Why did she fall for the leader of the band? (Orchestral Interlude) (Ah, here comes your friend, coming down the street now) Where did he get you, that night he looked into your eyes Or had he met you and it was all a big surprise Or did he give you that 'come and see me' from the stand Why did you fall for the leader of the band? Now listen, baby, why don't you break down and confess I saw you slip him your telephone and your address You're such a nice girl and I can never understand Why did you fall for the leader of the band? ANNE SHELTON: He said, "Wait for me", then took me out to dine I just told him that ??? ??? ???? ???? mine COOPER: And did he thrill you SHELTON: Oh! Boy, he did exactly that He said he loved me and then he took me to his flat He kept me smiling, he put a ring upon my hand That's why I fell for the leader of the band
