FRED ASTAIRE lyrics - Music Makes Me

FRED ASTAIRE
"Music Makes Me"

In me you see a sinner
And dancing is my crime
It seems a sin I've gotta give in
To syncopated time

It makes me lose my dignity
It makes me lose my poise
And some folks call it music
But my folks call it noise

I like music, old or new
But music makes me do
The things I never should do

I like music, sweet or blue
But music makes me do
The things I never should do

My self-control
Was something to brag about
Now it's a gag about town
The things I do are never forgiven

For just when I'm livin' 'em down
I hear music, then I'm through
For music makes me do
The things I never should do

I like music old or new
But music makes me
I like music sweet or blue
But music makes me

My self-control was something
But now it's a gag about town
The things I do are never forgiven

But just when I'm livin' 'em down
I hear music then I'm through
For music makes me do
The things I never should do
