Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist.

Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
I never saw a good one yet
Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get

He will swear he's seeking
Your love for ever more
And then he comes home reeking
Of perfume you never wore

You'll maybe wanna shoot him
But he isn't worth the shot
And you can bet the other woman
Has found out he's not so hot

Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
I never saw a good one yet
Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get

He says he'll surprise you
With diamonds and with mink
But the only things he buys you
Are a wringer and a sink

He may be full of glamour
At the opera in a box
But he ain't so darned attractive
When you're washin' out his socks

Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
I never saw a good one yet
Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
And if you love 'em nothin's what you'll get

Their wiley arts, their tender pleas
Their fickle hearts, their knobby knees

Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
A girl who's smart will leave `em be.
Good for nothin'
Men are good for nothin'
But can we do without 'em, No Sir-eee
But can we do without 'em, No sir-eee
