"Bewitched" as written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields....
I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?
Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep
When love came and told me, I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?

Lost my heart, but what of it
He is cold I agree
He can laugh, but I love it although the laughs on me
I'll sing to him, each spring to him
And long, for the day when I'll cling to him
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?

He's a fool and don't I know it
But a fool can have his charms
I'm in love and don't I show it like a babe in arms
Love's the same old sad sensation
Lately I've not slept a wink
Since this half-pint imitation put me on the blink

I've sinned a lot, I'm mean a lot
But I'm like sweet seventeen a lot
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?
I'll sing to him, each spring to him
And worship the trousers that cling to him
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?

When he talks, he is seeking
Words to get off his chest
Horizontally speaking, he's at his very best
Vexed again, perplexed again
Thank God, I can be oversexed again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I?

Wise at last, my eyes at last
Are cutting you down to your size at last
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered no more
Burned a lot, but learned a lot
And now you are broke, so you earned a lot
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered no more

Couldn't eat, was dyspeptic
Life was so hard to bear
Now my heart's antiseptic since you moved out of there
Romance, finis, your chance, finis
Those ants that invaded my pants, finis
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, no more
