I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face [From My Fair Lady]
Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn! I've grown accustomed to her face She almost makes the day begin I've grown accustomed to the tune that She whistles night and noon Her smiles, her frowns Her ups, her downs Are second nature to me now Like breathing out and breathing in I was serenely independent and content before we met Surely I could always be that way again And yet I've grown accustomed to her look Accustomed to her voice Accustomed to her face I can see her now, Mrs. Freddy Eynsford-Hill In a wretched little flat above a store I can see her now, not a penny in the till And a bill collector beating at the door She'll try to teach the things I taught her And end up selling flowers instead Begging for her bread and water While her husband has his breakfast in bed. In a year, or so, when she's prematurely grey And the blossom in her cheek has turned to chalk She'll come home, and lo, he'll have upped and run away With a social-climbing heiress from New York Poor Eliza. How simply frightful How humiliating! How delightful How poignant it'll be on that inevitable night When she hammers on my door in tears and rags Miserable and lonely, repentant and contrite Will I take her in or hurl her to the walls Give her kindness or the treatment she deserves Will I take her back or throw the baggage out But I'm a most forgiving man The sort who never could, ever would Take a position and staunchly never budge A most forgiving man But, I shall never take her back If she were even crawling on her knees Let her promise to atone Let her shiver, let her moan I'll slam the door and let the hell-cat freeze But I'm so used to hear her say Good morning everyday Her joys, her woes Her highs, her lows Are second nature to me now Like breathing out and breathing in I'm very grateful she's a woman And so easy to forget Rather like a habit One can always break And yet I've grown accustomed to the trace Of something in the air Accustomed to her face
