BAD IN EVERY MAN, THE From the film "Manhattan Melodrama" (1934) (Music: Richard Rodgers / Lyrics: Lorenz Hart) Shirley Ross (Film Soundtrack) - 1934 Oh, Lord, what is the matter with me I'm just permitted to see The bad in every man Oh, hear me, Lord, I could be good to a lover But then I always discover The bad in every man They like to tell you that they love you only And you believe it, so you'll know you're wrong A little hall room can be awfully lonely And the night can be so very long Oh, Lord, perhaps I'll alter my plan And overlook if I can The bad in every man TRIVIA: Originally titled "Prayer (Oh Lord, Make Me A Movie Star)", it was to have been sung by Jean Harlow in the 1933 film, "Hollywood Party". This idea was dropped and Lorenz Hart wrote new words, changing the title to "It's Just That Kind of Play" for proposed use in the 1934 film "Manhattan Melodrama". This version was also not used, but a third attempt, titled "The Bad In Every Man", was sung by Shirley Ross in that same film. The following year it underwent another lyric change and became the classic romantic ballad "Blue Moon". (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2017)
