What Do I Need with Love? Lyrics

Broadway production (2002)
Thoroughly Modern Millie the Musical - What Do I Need with Love? Lyrics

JIMMY
OH, THE PLACES I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU
ALTHOUGH I HARDLY KNOW YOU
I’VE A FUNNY FEELING WE MAKE A PERFECT PAIR

FAMOUS SIGHTS I WANT TO SEE YOU SEEING
THEN NIGHTS OF YOU AND ME-ING
ME
YOU. WE-
Wait a minute! Just a minute! No, no, no, no!

I’M A JOE WITH JUST ONE AIM
EV’RY NIGHT TO DATE A DIFF’RENT DAME
CALL EACH ONE OF ‘EM THE SAME PET NAME

“HEY BABY\"
IN A ROW, I HAVE MY DUCKS
LOADS OF GALS TO ME LOADS OF YUKS
LEAVE THE COONING TO THE OTHER CLUCKS
I DON’T MEAN MAYBE
GOT IT GOOD
WHAT DO I NEED WITH LOVE?

ALWAYS  PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH
KEEP TEMPTATION OUT OF EASY REACH
STICK TO GALS WHO WASH THEIR HAIR IN BLEACH
I’M HAPPY
COME AND GO THE WAY I CHOOSE
NEVER GONNA SING THE TIED DOWN BLUES
OTHER GUYS WOULD KILL TO FILL MY SHOES
NO WING-CLIPPED SAPPY
GOT IT GOOD
WHAT DO I NEED WITH LOVE?

THAT WAS A NEAR MISS
TALK ABOUT A CLOSE SHAVE
FLIRTED WITH DISASTER
THERE MUST BE SOMEONE UP THERE
WATCHIN’ OVER ME
TALK ABOUT A FOUR-LEAF-CLOVER-ME
PETER RABBIT’S MISSING FOOTSIE
MEANS I ROLL WITHOUT A TOOTSIE

GOT IT GOOD. WHAT DO I NEED WITH LOVE?

GOT IT GOOD. WHAT DO I NEED WITH LOVE?

SKIP THE VOWS AND ALL THAT ROT
TELL THE MINISTER THAT I “DO” NOT
BRIGHT AND BREEZY IS THE-
BIRDS AND BEES-Y
IS THE-
FREE AND EASY IS THE LIFE I GOT-

WITHOUT HER

ALTHOUGH I HARDLY KNOW YOU…

WHAT DO I NEED WITH LOVE?
I
GOT IT GOOD

GOT IT GOOD

BUT NOW I GOT IT BAD!

[Thanks to Darci Faye for lyrics]
