Bessie Couldn't Help It Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Bessie couldn't help it,
Bessie couldn't help it
Verse 2
Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could, or I could
Bessie couldn't help it though she tried to be good, Oh! So good.
She was pretty as the heavens above
Oh! Boy but how she could love
Bessie had affection that was simply wonderful,terrible
But Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could or I could.
When she smiled you were bound to fall, that's all
A boy kissed Bessie in the parlor one night
Why, oh! Why did she yell with delight
'Cause Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could, or I could
Verse 3
Aww! Dum pe dum now people listen
Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could or I could
No Bessie couldn't help it though she tried to be good, oh! So good.
She was pretty as the heavens above
And oh! Boy how that girl could love
Bessie had affection that was simply wonderful
Bop, bop be de oww.
Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could, or I could
Now when she smiled you were bound to fall, that's all. Boy!
Boy kissed Bessie in the street one night
My oh! My how she yelled with delight
Bessie couldn't help it any more than you could, or I could
