Cole Porter - The Laziest Gal In Town Lyrics

I got a guy, his name is Jim
He loves me and I love him
But when he says I'm too prim
Why, here's what I say to him:
I let him rant, I let him rave
I let him muss my permanent wave
But when he says, "Come on, let's misbehave,"
My answer is "No."

It's not 'cause I wouldn't
It's not 'cause I shouldn't
The good Lord knows it's not 'cause I couldn't
It's simply because I'm the laziest gal in town

My poor heart is achin'
To bring home the bacon
And if I alone am forsaken
It's simply because I'm the laziest gal in town

Though I'm more than willing to learn
How some girls get money to burn
Every proposition I turn
Down
Way down

It's not 'cause I wouldn't
It's not 'cause I shouldn't
The good Lord it's not 'cause I couldn't
It's simply because I'm the laziest gal in town
