Got a New Lease on Life song lyrics

Song lyrics to Got a New Lease on Life, performed by Ginger Rogers in the film In Person – Music by Oscar Levant, lyrics by Dorothy Fields

Life was a bitter pill, life was some pain
Life was a tailor’s bill, a ball and chain
Then something hit me like a whiff of Spring
My hats don’t fit me, it’s the most terrific thing

I got a new lease on life when
I bumped into love again
Got a reason for livin’ and doin’ what I do
It happened when I looked at you

I got a new lease on life now
No wrinkles upon my brow
I’m relaxin’ and I’m restin’, believe me when I say
I eat my spinach ev’ry day

I used to think that I was losin’ my grip
Both my shoulders carried a chip
But now I’m stronger than a battleship
I’m Popeye the Sailor girl

I got a new lease on life, oh
I’ve got that familiar glow
I’m delighted, excited, at last my mind at peace
I’ve got a brand new lease on life

I got a new lease on life when
I bumped into love again
I got a reason for livin’ and doin’ what I do
It happened when I looked at you

I got a new lease on life now
No wrinkles upon my brow
I’m relaxin’ and I’m restin’, believe me when I say
I eat my spinach ev’ry day

I used to think that I was losin’ my grip
Both my shoulders carried a chip
But now I’m stronger than a battleship
I’m Popeye the Sailor girl

I got a new lease on life, so
I’ve got that familiar glow
I’m delighted, excited, at last my mind at peace
I’ve got a brand new lease on life
