Why Can't You Behave?

Why Can't You Behave?

Ella Fitzgerald

Why can't you behave?
Oh, why can't you behave?
After all the things you told me,
And the promises that you gave,
Oh, why can't you behave?

Why can't you be good?
And do just as you should?
Won't you turn that new leaf over,
So your baby can be your slave?
Oh, why can't you behave?

There's a farm I know near my old home town,
Where we two can go and try settling down.
There I'll care for you forever,
Cause you're all in the world I crave.
But why can't you behave?

There's a farm I know near my old home town,
Where we two can go and try settling down.
There I'll care for you forever,
Cause you're all in the world I crave.
But why can't you, oh why can't you,
Oh why can't you behave?
