About Goody, Goody
This swinging little song concerns a man who thinks he can get away with playing the field without his girlfriend, but she finds out and sings her sweet revenge. The song was quite popular in the 1930s, mostly due to a Benny Goodman recording with Helen Ward on vocals. Other significant recordings include those by Mabel Mercer, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Crosby and others. I suspect this recording from Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga will join the list.

Lyrics

So you met someone who set you back on your heels, goody goody!
So you met someone and now you know how it feels, goody goody!
Well you gave him your heart too, just as I gave mine to you
And he broke it in little pieces, now how do you do?

So you lie awake just singing the blues all night, goody goody!
And you found that loves a barrel of dynamite!
Hurray and hallelujah, you had it comin to ya
Goody goody for you! goody goody for me! ya I hope you`re
Satisfied you rascal you!
