He's So Unusual

Transcribed by Helen Kane Wikia 100%


You talk of sweeties

Bashful sweeties

I got one of those

Ooooh, he's handsome as can be

But he worries me

He goes to college and gathers knowledge

What that boy knows

He's up in his latin and greek

But in his sheek and he's weak

Cause when I want some lovin

And I gotta have some lovin

He says please

Stop it please

He's so unusual

And when I want some kisses

And I gotta have some kisses

He says


Lemme go

He's so unusual

I know lots of boys who could be crazy over me

If they only had this fellows opportunity

Ya, know

I'd let him pet me

But the darn fool doesn't let me

Oh, he's so unusual that he drives me wild

When were in the moonlight

He says I don't like the moonlight

Aww, let's not park in the dark

Ahh...he's so unusual?

And when were riding in a taxi

He converses with the chauffeur

Aww, why don't he talk to me?

Oh, he's so different

Others would be tickled pink to



He don't even know what



He says love is hokum

Gee, I'd like to

Choke choke choke 'um

Cause he's so unusual that he drives me wild


You might as well be by yourself as in his company

When were out together

I'm as lonesome as can be

But still I'm mad about him

And I just can't live without him

Cause he's so unusual

That he drives me
