Johnny Mercer

[Words by Johnny Burke]
[Music by Jimmy Van Heusen]

When Madam Pompadour was on a ballroom floor
Said all the gentlemen
Obviously, the madam has the cutest personality

And think of all the books about Du Barry's looks
What was it made her the toast of Paree
She had a well-developed personality

What did Romeo see in Juliet
Or Figaro in Figarette
Or Jupiter in Juno
You know

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

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

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

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

Why are certain girls offered certain things
Like sable coats and wedding rings
By men who wear their spats right
That's right

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

Baby, you've got the cutest
