LES: Oh Look At Me Now

Images from the weekend of March 15th. Vocals by Nancy Wilson and Lee Wiley
Nancy's version
I'm not the girl who cared about love
And I'm not the girl who cared about fortunes and such
I never cared much
Oh, look at me now!
I never knew the technique of kissing
I never knew the thrill I could get from your touch
I never knew much
Oh, look at me now!
I'm a new girl in a whirl, never knew love was like this
With a new heart, brand new start
Gonna be a Mrs. can't miss
So I am the girl who turned down a lover
I am the girl who laughed at those blue diamond rings
One of those things
Oh, look at me now!
I'm a new girl in a whirl, never knew love was like this
With a new heart, brand new start
Gonna be a Mrs. can't miss
So I am the girl who turned down a lover
I am the girl who laughed at those blue diamond rings
Oh, look at me now!
Look at me now!
Look at me now!

Lee Wiley's version, sung in L.A. Confidential. The original lyrics are by Yip Harburg, music by Harold Arlen
I’m not the girl who cared ’bout money
I’m not the girl who cared about fortunes and such
Never cared much
Oh, look at me now
I never knew rhinestones from rubies
I never knew a mink from a sable or seal
Phonies from real
Oh, look at me now
Got a new man, what a man
He’s no handsome Errol Flynn
I like his face, and his bank is Chase
Half a million dollars ain’t tin
Oh I’m the girl longed for a cottage
So I’m the girl who’s got an estate with a gate
I’m doing great
Oh, look at me now
He gives me checks, brand new checks
I’ve got more than I deserve
I sleep till two, then what do I do?
Pour the wine and serve the hors d’oeuvres
Oh I’m the gal who’s married to Wall Street
Yes I’m the gal who’s worth about five hundred G’s
At which don’t sneeze
Oh, look at me now
Oh, look at me now
