it never entered my mind lyrics – sarah vaughan

i don’t care if there’s powder on my nose
i don’t care if my hair do is in place
i’ve lost the very meaning of repose
i never put a mud pack on my face

oh, who’d have thought that i’d walk in a daze
now i never go to shows at night but just to matinees
now i see the show and home i go

once i laughed when i heard you saying
that i’d be playing solitaire
uneasy in my easy chair
it never entered my mind

once you told me i was mistaken
that i’d awaken with the sun
and order orange juice for one
it never entered my mind

you have what i laughed myself
and now i even have
to scratch my back myself

once you warned me that if you scorned me
i’d sing the maiden’s prayer again
and wish that you were there again
to get into my hair again, it never entered my mind
