2011 Broadway revival
Follies the Musical - The God Why-Don't-You-Love-Me Blues Lyrics


BUDDY:
Hello, folks, we're into the Follies!
First, though, folks, we'll pause for a mo'.
No, no, folks, you'll still get your jollies--
It's just I got a problem that I think you should know.
See, I've been very perturbed of late, very upset,
Very betwixt and between.
The things that I want, I don't seem to get.
The things that I get--you know what I mean!
I've got those
"God-why-don't-you-love-me-oh-you-do-I'll-see-you-later"
Blues,
That
"Long-as-you-ignore-me-you're-the-only-thing-that-matters"
Feelin,
That
"If-I'm-good-enough-for-you-you're-not-good-enough"
and, "Thank-you-for-the-present-but-what's-wrong-with-It?"
Stuff,
Those
"Don't-come-any-closer-'cause-you-know-how-much-I-love-you"
Feelings,
Those
"Tell-me-that-you-love-me-oh-you-did-I-gotta-run-now"
Blues.
Margie... Margie... Margie... Margie.
She says she really love: me.

"MARGIE":
I love him-

BUDDY:
-she says.
She says she really cares.

"MARGIE":
I care, I Care.

BUDDY:
She says that I'm her hero.

"MARGIE":
He's my hero-

BUDDY:
-she says.
I'm perfect, she swears.

"MARGIE":
You're perfect, goddamit.

BUDDY:
She says that if we parted-

"MARGIE":
If we parted-

BUDDY:
-she says.
She says that she'd be sick.

"MARGIE":
Oh, God, I'm sick.
BUDDY:
She says she's mine forever-

"MARGIE":
Forever-

BUDDY:
-she says.
I gotta get outta here quick!
I've got those
"Whisper-how-I'm-better-than-I-think-but-what-do-you-know?"
Blues,
That
"Why-do-you-keep-telling-me-I-stink-when-I-adore-you?"
Feeling.
That
"Say-I'm-all-the-world-to-you-you're-out-of-your-mind-
I-know-there's-someone-else-and-I-could-kiss-you-behind,"
Those
"You-say-I'm-terrific-but-your-taste-was-always-rotten"
Feelings,
Those
"Go-away-I-need-you,"
"Come-to-me-I'll-kill-you,"
"Darling-I'll-do-anything-to-keep-you-with-me-till-you-
Tell-me-that-you-love-me-oh-you-did-now-beat-it-will-you?"
Blues!
Sally... Sally...Sally...Sally.
She says she loves another-

"SALLY":
Another-

BUDDY:
-she says,
A fella she prefers.

"SALLY":
Furs. Furs.

BUDDY:
She says that he's her idol.

"SALLY":
Idolidolidolidol-

BUDDY:
-she says.
Ideal, she avers.

"SALLY":
You deal..."Avers"!!

BUDDY:
She says that anybody-

"SALLY":
Buddy-bleah!-

BUDDY:
-she says,
Would suit her more than I.

"SALLY":
Aye, aye, aye.

BUDDY:
She says that I'm a washout-

"SALLY":
You're a washout-

BUDDY:
-she says.
I love her so much, I could die!

"SALLY":
Ooh. Ooh.
Ah! Ah!

BUDDY:
Oh!

"If-you-will-then-I-can't,
If-you-don't-then-I-gotta,
Give-it-to-me-I-don't-want-it.
If-you-won't-I-gotta-have-it,
High-low-wrong-right-
Yes-no-black-white.
God-why-don't-you-love-me-oh-you-do-I'll-see-you-later"
Blues!
