ANNETTE HANSHAW lyrics - I've Got "It" (But It Don't Do Me No Good)

ANNETTE HANSHAW
"I've Got "It" (But It Don't Do Me No Good)"

Every time I get a brand new sweetie
I'm up in the clouds, and I'm flyin' high.
Then my boyfriend, he gets a brand new sweetie.
You know, I don't seem to get a break.
I wonder why?

I'm a lonesome little babe in the woods, ooh, ooh,
I've got it, but it don't do me no good.
You know, I can't hold a man the way that I should, ooh, ooh,
I've got it, ah, but it don't do me no good.

I'm know I'm young and I'm so ambitious,
But why should I waste my charms?
I've got a lot of lovin',
But who's got the lips and arms?
Oh, I'm a girl who's been so misunderstood, ooh, ooh,
Oh, I've got it, ah, but it don't do me no good.

I'm a little lonesome red riding hood.
I've got it, but it don't do me a bit of good.
'Cause Mr. Wolf won't play the way that he should
I've got it, but it don't do me no good.

I'm like a barrel of rare old sherry
I'm longing to meet my fate.
I want somebody to marry,
But who wants to dissipate?
I'm afraid that I might ache in the woods
Oh, I've got it, but it don't do me no good!

Boop-boop-a-doop!
