Embraceable You

Embraceable You lyrics

Embraceable You

[INSTRUMENTAL: These lyrics are not in the movie]
Dozens of girls would storm up;
I had to lock my door.
Somehow I couldn't warmp up
To one before.
What was it that controlled me?
What kept my love-life lean?
My intuition told me
You'd come on the scene.
Lady, listen to the rhythm of my heart beat,
and you'll get just what I mean.

Embrace me,
My sweet embraceable you.
Embrace me,
You irreplaceable you.
Just one look at you -- my heart grew tipsy in me;
You and you alone bring out the gipsy in me.
I love all
The many charms about you;
Above all
I want my arms about you.
Don't be a naughty baby,
Come to papa -- come to papa -- do!
My sweet embraceable you.

I went about reciting,
"Here's one who'll never fall!"
But I'm afraid the writing
Is on the wall.
My nose I used to turn up
When you'd besiege my heart;
Now I completely burn up
When you're slow to start.
I'm afraid you'll have to take the consequences;
You upset the apple cart.

Embrace me,
My sweet embraceable you.
Embrace me,
You irreplaceable you.
In your arms I find love so delectable, dear,
I'm afraid it isn't quite respectable, dear.
But hang it --
Come on, let's glorify love!
Ding dang it!
You'll shout "Encore!" if I love.
Don't be a naughty papa,
Come to baby-- come to baby-- do!
My sweet embraceable you.
