A Hymn To Him

Lyrics

What in all of heaven could've promted her to go

After such a triumph as the ball

 

What could've depressed

What could've possessed

I cannot understand the wretch at all

My Fair Lady: A Hymn To Him - Julie Andrews

 

Women are irrational that's all there is to that

There heads are full of cotton hay and rags

 

They're nothing but exasperating irritating

Vacillating calculating agitating

Maddening and infuriating hags

 

Pickering

 

Why can't a woman be more like a man

 

Hmm

 

Yes

Why can't a woman be more like a man

 

Men are so honest so thoroughly square

 

Eternally noble historic'ly fair

 

Who when you win will always give your back a pat

 

Well why can't a woman be like that

 

Why does ev'ryone do what the others do

 

Can't a woman learn to use her head

 

Why do they do ev'rything their mothers do

 

Why don't they grow up well like their father instead

Why can't a woman take after a man

 

Men are so pleasant so easy to please

 

Whenever you are with them you're always at ease

 

Would you be slighted if i didn't speak for hours

Of course not

Would you be livid if i had a drink or two

Nonsense

Would you be wounded if i never sent you flowers

Never

Well why can't a woman be like you

 

One man in a million may shout a bit

 

Now and then there's one with slight defects

 

One perhaps whose truthfulness you doubt a bit

But by and large we are a marvelous sex

Why can't a woman take after like a man

 

Men are so friendly good natured and kind

 

A better companion you never will find

 

If i were hours late for dinner would you bellow

Of course not

If i forgot your silly birthday would you fuss

Nonsense

Would you complain if i took out another fellow

Never

Well why can't a woman be like us

 

Mrs pearce you're a woman

 

Why can't a woman be more like a man

 

Men are so decent such regular chaps

 

Ready to help you through any mishaps

 

Ready to buck you up whenever you are glum

 

Why can't a woman be a chum

 

Why is thinking something women never do

 

Why is logic never even tried

 

Straight'ning up their hair is all they ever do

 

Why don't they straighten up the mess that's inside

 

Why can't a woman behave like a man

 

If i was a woman who'd been to a ball

 

Been hailed as a princess by one and by all

 

Would i start weeping like a bathtub overflowing

 

And carry on as if my home were in a tree

 

Would i run off and never tell me where i'm going

 

Why can't a woman be like we
