“What’s the Use of Wond’rin’?” LYRICS

Julie:
What’s the use of wond’rin’
If he’s good or if he’s bad,
Or if you like the way he wears his hat?

Oh, what’s the use of wond’rin’
If he’s good or if he’s bad?
He’s your feller and you love him—
That’s all there is to that.

Common sense may tell you
That the endin’ will be sad
And now’s the time to break and run away.

But what’s the use of wond’rin’
If the endin’ will be sad?
He’s your feller and you love him—
There’s nothin’ more to say.

Somethin’ made him the way that he is,
Whether he’s false or true.
And somethin’ gave him the things that are his—
One of those things is you.

So, when he wants your kisses
You will give them to the lad,
And anywhere he leads you, you will walk.

And anytime he needs you,
You’ll go runnin’ there like mad.
You’re his girl and he’s your feller—
And all the rest is talk.
