"Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" is a show tune and popular song from the 1940 Rodgers and Hart musical Pal Joey. The song was introduced by Vivienne Segal on December 25, 1940 in the Broadway production during Act I, Scene 6 and again in Act II, Scene 4 as a reprise. Segal also sang the song on both the 1950 hit record and in the 1952 Broadway revival. It was performed by Carol Bruce in the 1954 London production. A piano version by Bill Snyder was a giant hit in 1950.

Lady Gaga covered the song at Jazz at Lincoln Center for the television special "Cheek to Cheek LIVE!". The live version is available as a bonus track on the Target deluxe edition and International physical deluxe edition her and Tony Bennett's collaborative jazz album, Cheek to Cheek.

Lyrics

After one whole quart of brandy
Like a daisy, I'm awake
With no Bromo-Seltzer handy
I don't even shake

Men are not a new sensation
I've done pretty well I think
But this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink

But I'm wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Am I

I could not sleep and wouldn't sleep
Till love came and told me I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Am I

Oh, I lost my heart but what of it?
He is cold, I agree
They can laugh but I love him
And so the laugh's on me

I'll sing to him, bring spring to him
And long for the day when I 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

Oh, I've sinned a lot, I mean a lot
But now I'm sweet 17 a lot
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Am I

Bewitched
Bothered
And bewildered
Am I
