Lyrics

What Did You Do to The Lady?
© Bill Burnett

What did you do to the lady?
How did you stalk your prey
Which of your favorite shady gambits did you play?
Don't look for help from the jury
None of us feel your charms
What did you do to the lady
To get her in your arms, get her in your arms
get her in your arms, get her in your arms?

How did you tickle her fancy?
How did you mesmerize?
Tell us what step in the dance she gazed into your eyes
What was that poem you murmured
As our patrol broke in?
What did you say to the lady
To make her senses swim, make her senses swim
make her senses swim, make her senses swim?

Well there's a eunich in a tunic
Taking down your every wince
Everything you don't say can and will
Be used as evidence
It's a cowardly new world we're in
That loves to make you squirm
We are all here bearing witness
To the turning of the worm

What did you do to the lady
How did you make her cry
We tried to talk to the lady
But she wouldn't testify
What did you do to the lady
Show us your best caress
How long we put you away depends on how well you confess
We need a crime to dream on
Something obscenely new
What did you say to the lady?
Only I love you, only I love you
only I love you, only I love you
only I love you, only I love you
