My heart is sad and lonely!
For you I sigh, for you dear only.
Why haven't you seen it?
I'm all for you, Body and Soul.

I spend my days in longing,
And wondering why it's me you're wronging.
I tell you, I mean it,
I'm all for you, Body and Soul!

I can't believe it,
Its hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance.
Are you pretending?
It looks like the ending!--
Unless, I can have
One more chance to prove dear..

My life a wreck you're making!
You know I'm yours
For just the taking
I'd gladly surrender
Myself to you, Body and Soul!

Someday he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay

He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand
And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would, would you?
And so, all else above,
I'm waiting for the man I love

I love you, porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
And drive me mad

If you can keep me
I want to stay with you forever
And I'll be glad

I love you, porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
With his hot hands

If you can keep me
I want to stay with you forever
I like my man

Someday I know he's coming
Back to call me
He's gonna handle me
And hold me so

It's going to be like dying, porgy
When he calls me
But when he comes, I know
I'll have to go
