WICKEDNESS OF MEN, THE >From the film "Molly And Me" (1945) (W.E. Haines / J. Harper) Gracie Fields (Film Soundtrack) - 1945 As performed by GRACIE FIELDS in the film "Molly And Me": I hate to cast astersions at the strong and silent sex But it's really time you got a blooming chopper on your necks They way you mess us girls around, it really is a shame You always do the dirty and we always get the blame He was tall and he was handsome and he let me call him Ben. Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I hate to have to mention it, but here I go again Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I looked right in his sloppy eyes and there I met me fate I felt just like a fish who'd had a nibble at the bait And then he turned his back on me and said, "I'm going straight" Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I knew a chap called Rudolph and he he was a proper toff But, ooh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I used to rub his chest in because he had a nasty cough h, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! He took me out to dinner, oh, we had such lovely times Then I had to chuck hime 'cause he never had a dime And now to get revenge, he sends me wicked valentines Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! ************************* As recorded by GRACIE FIELDS for record release: I hate to cast astersions at the strong and silent sex But it's really time they got a blooming chopper on their necks They way they mess us girls around it really is a shame They always do the dirty, and we always get the blame He was tall and he was handsome and he let me call him Ben Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I hate to have to mention it, but here I go again Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I looked right in his fluffy eyes and there I met me fate I felt just like a fish who'd had a nibble at the bait And then he turned his back on me and said, "I'm going straight" Oh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I knew a chap called Rudolph and he, he was a proper toff But, ooh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! I used to rub his chest in because he had a nasty cough But, ooh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! He took me out to dinner and he doped me, gin and lime He tried his best to worst me, but I spoiled his base design And now to get revenge, he sends me dirty valentines Hoo-ooh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men! So get to know your onions, girls, and mind your p's and q's There's so much that an honest working girl has got to lose Instead of saying no at first, say yes and then refuse Hoo-ooh, the artfulness, the sinfulness, the wickedness of men!
