Nick and Fanny meet up in Baltimore where
Fanny is on a tour with Ziegfeld's latest show
They have dinner at a private dining room
Fanny is annoyed that Nick hasn't been in
Touch for ten months. Nick orders, mainly
In French, which Fanny doesn't understand
Fanny is uneasy that Nick might make
Advances in such an intimate room
You are woman, I am man
You are smaller, so I can be taller than
You are softer to the touch
It's a feeling I like feeling very much
You are someone I've admired
Still, our friendship
Leaves something to be desired
Does it take more explanation than this?
You are woman, I am man
Let's kiss
Isn't this the height of nonchalance
Furnishing a bed in restaurants?
Well, a bit of dinner never hurt
But guess who is gonna be dessert?
Do good girls do just what mama says
When mama's not around?
It's a feeling
Oy vey, what a feeling
A bit of pate?
I drink it all day
Should I do the things he'll tell me to?
In this pickle what would Nellie do?
In my soul I feel an inner lack
Just suppose he wants his dinner back?
Does it take more explanation than this?
Just some dried-out toast in a sliver
On the top a little chopped liver
How many girls become a sinner
While waiting for a roast beef dinner?
Though most girls slip in ordinary ways
I got style--I do it bordelaise
Well, at least he thinks I'm special
--He ordered a la carte
It's a feeling I like feeling very...
I feel the feeling down to my toes
Now I feel that there's a fire here
Try that once a little higher, dear
What a beast to ruin such a pearl
Would a convent take a Jewish girl?
Does it take more explanation than this?
Ooh, the thrills and chills goin' through me
If I stop him now
Can he sue me?
You are woman...
You are man...
Let's kiss
