Song Meaning
Verse 1
After one whole quart of brandy
Like a daisy, I'm awake
With no bromo-seltzer handy
I don't even shake
Verse 2
Men are not a new sensation
I've done pretty well I think
But this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink
Verse 3
I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 4
Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep
When love came and told me, I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 5
Lost my heart, but what of it
He is cold I agree
He can laugh, but I love it
Although the laugh's on me
Verse 6
I'll sing to him, each spring to him
And long, for the day when I'll cling to him
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 7
He's a fool and don't I know it
But a fool can have his charms
I'm in love and don't I show it
Like a babe in arms
Verse 8
Love's the same old sad sensation
Lately I've not slept a wink
Since this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink
Verse 9
I've sinned a lot, I'm mean a lot
But I'm like sweet seventeen a lot
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 10
I'll sing to him, each spring to him
And worship the trousers that cling to him
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 11
When he talks, he is seeking
Words to get, off his chest
Horizontally speaking, he's at his very best
Verse 12
Vexed again, perplexed again
Thank god, I can be oversexed again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
Verse 13
Wise at last, my eyes at last,
Are cutting you down to your size at last
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - no more
Verse 14
Burned a lot, but learned a lot
And now you are broke, so you earned a lot
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - no more
Verse 15
Couldn't eat, was dispeptic
Life was so hard to bear
Now my heart's antiseptic
Since you moved out of there
Verse 16
Romance, finis. your chance, finis.
Those ants that invaded my pants, finis.
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - no more
