Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The gentleman is a dope,
A man of many faults,
A clumsy Joe
Who wouldn't know
A rumba from a waltz.
Verse 2
The gentleman is a dope
And not my cup of tea;
Why do I get in a dither?
He doesn't belong to me!
Verse 3
The gentleman isn't bright,
He doesn't know the score;
A cake will come,
He'll take a crumb
And never ask for more!
Verse 4
The gentleman's eyes are blue,
But little do they see,
Why am I beatin' my brains out?
He doesn't belong to me!
Verse 5
He's somebody else's problem,
She's welcome to the guy!
She'll never understand him
Half as well as I.
Verse 6
The gentleman is a dope,
He isn't very smart;
He's just a lug
You'd like to hug
And hold against your heart.
Verse 7
The gentleman doesn't know
How happy he could be,
But look at me cryin' my eyes out
As if he belonged to me;
He'll never belong to me!
Verse 8
The gentleman doesn't know
How happy he could be,
But look at me cryin' my eyes out
As if he belonged to me;
He'll never ever,
He'll never belong to me!
