Embraceable You



Embraceable You
music by George Gershwin (left)
lyric by Ira Gershwin (right)


Dozens of girls would storm up; I had to lock my door.
Somehow I couldn't warm 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 heartbeat, and you'll get just what I mean...

Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you.
Embrace me, my irreplaceable you.
Just one look at you--my heart grew tipsy in me;
You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me.

I love all the many charms about you;
Above allI 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...

Dear lady, my silk-and-laceable you;
Dear lady, be my embraceable you.
You're the only one I love, yes, verily so!
But you're much too shy, unnecessarily so!

I'll try not to be so formal, my dear.
Am I not a man who's normal, my dear?
There's just one way to cheer me;
Come to papa--come to papa--do!
My sweet embraceable you...
