Song Meaning
Verse 1
When Madam Pompadour was on a ballroom floor
Said all the gentlemen "Obviously,"
"The madam has the cutest personality"
Verse 2
And think of all the books about do Barry's looks
What was it made her the toast of Paree?
She had a well-developed personality
Verse 3
(What did Romeo see in Juliet?)
(Or Figaro in Figarette?)
(Or Jupiter in Juno?)
You know!
Verse 4
And when Salome danced and had the boys entranced
No doubt it must have been easy to see
That she knew how to use her personality
Verse 5
(A girl can learn to spell and take dictation well)
(And never sit on the boss's left knee)
(Unless she's got a perfect personality)
Verse 6
(A girl can get somewhere in spite of stringy hair)
(Or even just a bit bowed at the knee)
(If she can show a faultless personality)
Verse 7
Why are certain girls offered certain things
Like sable coats and wedding rings?
By men who wear their spats right?
(That's right!)
Verse 8
(So don'tcha say "I'm smart and have the kindest heart"
(Or "what a wonderful sister I'd be")
Just tell me how you like my
"Rufff!!
(Personality)
Verse 9
Baby, you've got the cutest
Personality!!
