YOU CAN HAVE HIM From the Broadway Musical "Miss Liberty" (1949) (Irving Berlin) Mary McCarty & Allyn McLerie (Broadway Production) - 1949 Dinah Shore & Doris Day - 1949 Fran Warren - 1949 Ella Fitzgerald - 1958 Nina Simone - 1959 Nancy Wilson - 1963 Shirley Bassey - 1965 Eydie Gorme - 1969 Anita Lindblom - 1981 Lina Nyberg - 1993 Ida McBeth - 2006 Kim Nalley - 2006 Also recorded by: Liza Minnelli; Vanda King. As recorded by ELLA FITZGERALD with Studio Orchestra conducted by Paul Weston March 1958, Los Angeles: You can have him, I don't want him He's not worth fighting for Besides, there's plenty more where he came from I don't want him, you can have him I'm giving him the sack And he can go right back where he came from I could never make him happy He'd be better off with you I'm afraid I never loved him All I ever wanted to do was Run my fingers through his curly locks Mend his underwear and darn his socks Fetch his slippers and remove his shoes Wipe his glasses when he read the news Rub his forehead with a gentle touch Mornings after when he's had too much Kiss him gently when he cuddled near Give him babies, one for every year So you see.... I don't wan' him, you can have him You can have him, I don't wan' him For he's not the man for me (Instrumental Break) You can have him, I don't want him He's not worth fighting for Besides, there's plenty more where he came from I don't want him, you can have him He isn't my concern And he can just return where he came from I would look a trifle silly Taking him away from you That was never my intention All I ever wanted to do was Close the window while he soundly slept Raid the icebox where the food is kept Cook a breakfast that would please him most Eggs and coffee snd some buttered toast Wake him gently with a breakfast tray After breakfast clear the things away Bring the papers, and when they've been read Spend the balance of the day in bed So you see.... I don't wan' him, you can have him You can have him, I don't wan' him For he's not the man for me ******************** As recorded by NANCY WILSON: You can have him, I don't want him He's not worth fighting for Besides, there's plenty more where he came from You can have him. I don't want him I'm giving him the sack And he can go right back where he came from I could never make him happy He'd be better off with you I'm afraid I never loved him All I ever wanted to do was.... Run my fingers through his curly locks I'd even mend his underwear and darn his socks Bring his slippers and remove his shoes Wipe his glasses when he's read the news Rub his forehead with a gentle touch Mornings after when he's had a little too much Kiss him gently when he cuddles near And give him babies, one for ev'ry year So you see You can have him, I don't want him I don't want him, you can have him For he's not the man for me I would look a trifle silly Taking him away from you That was never my intention All I ever wanted to do was.... Close the window while he soundly slept And then I'd raid the icebox where the food is kept And I'd cook some breakfast that would please him most Ham and eggs and coffee and he's fond of apple butter on toast I'd Wake him gently with a breakfast tray After breakfast I'd clear the things away Then I'd get the newspapers and when they've been read We'd spend the balance of the day in bed So you see You can have him, I don't want him If you can get him, you can have him For he's not, no he's not the man for me ******************** As recorded by SHIRLEY BASSEY: I don't want him, you can have him He's not worth fighting for Besides, there's plenty more where he came from I don't want him, you can have him I'm giving him the sack So he can go right back where he came from I'm afraid I never loved him He'd be better off with you I could never make him happy All I ever wanted to do was.... Run my fingers through his curly locks Mend his clothes and darn his socks Fetch his slippers and remove his shoes Wipe his glasses when he read the news Rub his forehead with a gentle touch Mornings after when he had a little too much Kiss him gently when he cuddled near And give him babies, one for ev'ry year So you see That you can have him, I don't want him I don't want him, you can have him Because he's not the man for me Then I'd close the windows while he soundly slept Then I'd raid the icebox where the food is kept I'd cook some breakfast that would please him most Eggs and coffee and some buttered toast Aaaahhh-aah-aah-aah, aah-aah-aah-aah-aaaahhh Then I'd go out and buy him the papers And when they'd been read Spend the balance of the day in bed So you see That you can have him, I don't want him I don't want him, you can have him Because he's not my man I don't want him, you can have him You can have him, I don't want him I don't want him, you can have him Because he's not the man for me ******************** (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2009) (Updated by Mel Priddle - June 2014)
