You Did It Lyrics

You Did It (你成功了) - Alan Jay Lerner

Tonight old man you did it

You did it You did it

You said that you would do it

And indeed you did

I thought that you would rue it;

I doubted you'd do it But now I must admit it

That succeed you did You should get a medal

Or be even made a knight

It was nothing

 

Really nothing

 

All alone you hurdled

Every obstacle in sight

 

Now wait Now wait

Give credit where it's due

A lot of the glory goes to you

 

But you're the one who did it

Who did it who did it As sturdy as Gibraltar

Not a second did you falter There's no doubt about it

You did it

 

I must have aged a year tonight

At times I thought I'd die of fright

Never was there a momentary lull

 

Shortly after we came in I saw at once we'd easily win;

And after that I found it deadly dull

 

You should have heard the ooh's and ah's;

Every one wondering who she was

 

You'd think they'd never seen a lady before

 

And when the Prince of Transylvania

 

Asked to meet her

 

And gave his arm to lead her to the floor

 

I said to him:

You did it You did it You did it

They thought she was ecstatic

And so damned aristocratic

And they never knew

That you did it

 

Thank Heavens for Zoltan Karparthy

 

If it hadn't been for him I would have died of boredom

Yes He was there all right And up to his old tricks

Karparthy That dreadful Hungarian

 

Was he there

Yes

 

That blackguard who uses the science of speech

 

More to blackmail and swindle than teach;

 

He made it the devilish business of his

 

"To find out who this Miss Doolittle is "

 

Every time we looked around

There he was that hairy hound From Budapest

 

Never leaving us alone Never have I ever known

A ruder pest

 

Finally I decided it was foolish

 

Not to let him have his chance with her

 

So I stepped aside and let him dance with her

 

Oozing charm from every pore

He oiled his way around the floor

 

Every trick that he could play

He used to strip her mask away

 

And when at last the dance was done

He glowed as if he knew he'd won

 

And with a voice too eager

And a smile too broad He announced to the hostess

That she was a fraud

 

No

 

Ja vol

 

"Her English is too good" he said

"That clearly indicates that she is foreign

 

Whereas others are instructed in their native language

English people aren't

 

And although she may have studied with an expert

Dilectician and grammarian

 

I can tell that she was born Hungarian

 

Not only Hungarian but of royal blood

 

She is a princess "

 

Congratulations Professor Higgins

 

For your glorious Victory Congratulations

 

Professor Higgins Sing hail and hallelujah

 

This evening sir you did it You did it You did it

You said that you would do it And indeed you did

 

This evening sir you did it You did it You did it

We know that we have said it

But-you did it and the credit

 

For it all belongs to you
