IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Go Home And Tell It To Your Wife

IRVING BERLIN
"Go Home And Tell It To Your Wife"

[Duet for married man and mistress:]

You can't do this to me, you can't do this to me
I've given you the best years of my life
You can't put on your hat, walk out and leave me flat
-Go home tonight and tell it to your wife

You can't do this to me, you can't do this to me
I'm hurt, we haven't even had a row
You can't give me the air and end this love affair
-Go home tonight and tell it to your frau

I guess that you've forgotten those wonderful nights
Remember, in this country, a husband has rights

You can't do this to me, you can't do this to me
Remember that a home is not a house
You can't say that we're through with all I've done for you
-Go home tonight and tell it to your spouse
