help with mystery lyric#0
Posted: 7/2/03 at 6:39pm
I tried Google, but no luck. The lyric could be associated with Judy Garland, but I'm not sure. It goes a little something like this:

You think you're cute, you think you're sweet
Well let me tell you, you can't be beat
You've got what...at-tracts me.

That little nose, that funny smile
It all together makes life worthwhile
You've got what...at-tracts me.

If you should ever go away
I don't know what I'll do
'Cause your face means so much to me
I'll always want it smiling through...

I think you're cute, I think you're sweet
From the top of your head to your little feet
You've got what....at-tracts me.

*********

Logically, the title would be YOU'VE GOT WHAT ATTRACTS ME, but I can't find that reference. Anyone know the song, or better yet, a recording or sheet music I could get? thanx if you can help.

Why does George Gershwin's FUNNY FACE come to mind?
"Long live God!" (GODSPELL)

I think it sounds like an early Berlin lyric. I am pretty big Judy fan and it doesn't sound familiar to me.

The Gershwins wrote a song called "You've Got What Gets Me" could that be it? I could not find the lyrics, only the title on a Gershwin search.

I do have to ask the obvious question....why do you need to know. These are such poor lyrics. Why is knowing the origins so important?

Yours for a better Broadway!

If you are in NYC, go to the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts. On the Second Floor they have a card index file with songs listed by first line of lyrics. Sorry, I don't recognize the lyrics you posted.
