Goody Goody

Last night we heard a live band play the old Johnny Mercer song, “Goody Goody.” So to answer the daily prompt, here is the third line of that little ditty.

So you gave him your heart too,
just as I gave mine to you,
and he broke it in little pieces,
and now how do you do?

Seems like the voice (I tend to think of female)(Ella Fitzgerald) has it in for the guy who dumped her and then as his comeuppance got dumped by his new attachment. She changes the gender in the  lyrics.

Poor guy. No hope of forgiveness from Ella.

Peggy Lee sings a sultry version here.  Check them both out and tell me which version comes out on top.

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
