I Begged Her

Writer(s): Jule Styne / Sammy Cahn
(From The Columbia Years, 1943-1952, Disc 1)

I begged her, I pleaded, I told her: Baby, come out of your shell,
I told her: Maybe, you’ll find that it’s swell,
I argued, I threatened, I said: You can’t send me home,
Not like this, then I finally got my kiss.
(musical interlude)
