I never had it, I never wanted it, I never had your beauty mark Nor did I have your black hair and hazel eyes
My early childhood was not as simple As yours set in the country No I did not have a fears of nuns who dressed in black
But I do have your tastes I had no radio show, nor did I have Home-made clothes, home-made curtains Of the same material
I never had it, I never wanted it, I never had your beauty mark, beauty mark
But I do have your tastes And I do have your red face and long hands
I think Callas sang a lovely "Norma" You prefer Robeson on "Deep River" I may not be so manly, But still I know you love me Even if I don't have your beauty mark Beauty mark
