Irving Berlin, 1920

Listen to me, honey dear
Something's wrong with you I fear
It's getting harder to please you
Harder and harder each year
I don't want to make you blue
But you need a talking to!
Like alot of people I know,
Here's what's wrong with you:
Chorus:
After you get what you want
Yyou don't want it,
If I gave you the moon,
You'd grow tired of it soon.
You're like a baby,
You want what you want when you want it,
But after you are presented
With what you want you're discontented.
You're always wishing and wanting for something,
When you get what you want,
You want what you don't get.
And though you sit upon my knee,
You'll grow tired of me,
'Cause after you get what you want
You don't want what you wanted at all!
2. Don't you say that I'm unkind
Think it over and you'll find
You've got a changeable nature
You're always changing your mind!
There's a longing in your eye
That is hard to satisfy
You're unhappy most of the time,
Here's the reason why:
Chorus:
