Subject: Lyr Add: Lady Be Good
Lyr. Add: Lady Be Good
George & Ira Gershwin, 1924

Listen to my tale of woe,
It's terribly sad but true.
All dressed up, no place to go,
Each ev'ning I'm awfully blue.

I know I'm a winsome miss
I must win some handsome guy
Can't go on like this.
I could blossom out I know,
With somebody just like you. So--

Chorus:

Oh, sweet and lovely lady, be good
Oh, lady, be good to me
I am so awf'ly misunderstood
So lady, be good, to me.

Oh, please have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city

I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,
So lady be good to me.
(bis)

Oh lady be good to me.
