lyrics to Embraceable You (From "Girl Crazy") / George Gershwin

George Gershwin
Embraceable You

Dozens of girls would storm up
I had to lock my door
somehow i couldn't warm up
to one before
what was it that controlled me
what kept my love life lean
my intuition told me
you'd come on the scene
lady listen to the rhythm of my heartbeat
and you'll get just what I mean
Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you
just one look at you my heart grew tipsy in me
You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me
I love all the many charms about you
above all i want my arms about
Don't be a naughty baby...
come to papa come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you...
S'wonderful Gershwin Songbook (1992)
Dozens of girls would storm up
I had to lock my door
somehow i couldn't warm up
to one before

what was it that controlled me
what kept my love life lean
my intuition told me
you'd come on the scene

lady listen to the rhythm of my heartbeat
and you'll get just what I mean

Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you
just one look at you my heart grew tipsy in me
You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me

I love all the many charms about you
above all i want my arms about
Don't be a naughty baby...
come to papa come to papa do

My sweet embraceable you...

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-Gershwin and his brother moved to Hollywood to try their hand at the film industry. In 1936, the Gershwins collaborated on the music for <i>Shall We Dance</i>, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, followed by Astaire's <i>Damsel in Distress</i>. Gershwin was working on the score for <i>The Goldwyn Follies</i> in 1937 when he collapsed. Complaining of severe headaches and smelling burning rubber, Gershwin was told by doctors that he was just working too hard. He had already been labeled a hypochondriac and two weeks before his death, doctors noted on his medical records that he likely suffered from "hysteria." However, on July 9, Gershwin collapsed again and doctors performed surgery to remove a brain tumor. He died two days later. Gershwin received his only Academy Award nomination two months later for Best Original Song for "They Can't Take That Away from Me" from <i>Shall We Dance</i>. Ira died in 1983 and the Gershwin brothers were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian honor in America, in 1985.
