"Look Me Over Closely" as written by and Terry / Gilkyson....
Look me over closely
Tell me what you see
The lady likes to look her best
Before she pours the tea
You said I'm [?]
That makes the evening sun go down
Oh look me over closely
Tell me what you find
But don't be over anxious
I'm not the marryin' kind
I'm a poor in a storm
You'll harbor where it's warm
In my arms you will hide
From the great big world outside
Oh but when you come and see me
Don't try to change my ways
You'll have a part within my heart
And there you'll always stay
There's room for all
Not for all
But don't blame me
If you fall
So look me over closely
And then make up your mind
But darling please remember this
I'm holding you before we kiss
So look me over closely
Because I may be the marryin' kind
Oh well I may be the marryin' kind
Oh well I may be the marryin' kind
Oh

    My InterpretationIt's about a man who is not a boyfriend or potential lover for a woman. In other words, they're just fuck-buddies. She goes to him for comfort and he provides her some level of comfort, but he tries to remind himself that she's not for him. Then she grows on him to a bit of an extent and he finds that he likes her quite a bit.

    General CommentThis is Marlene Dietrich's signature tune.

    It is another example of Jack taking a song famously sung by a women and making it his own. This is a great cover.
