Song lyrics to Wouldn’t It Be Loverly (1958), by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, written for their Broadway play My Fair Lady

Wouldn’t It Be Loverly is sung by Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and her street friends. It expresses Eliza’s wish for a better life.

All I want is a room somewhere
Far away from the cold night air
With one enormous chair
Aow wouldn’t it be loverly?

Lots of choc’lates for me to eat
Lots of coal makin’ lots of ‘eat
Warm face, warm ‘ands, warm feet
Aow wouldn’t it be loverly?

Aow so loverly sittin’ abso-bloomin’-lutely still
I would never budge ’till spring
Crept over me windowsill

Someone’s ‘ead restin’ on my knee
Warm an’ tender as ‘e can be
‘ho takes good care of me
Aow wouldn’t it be loverly?

Wouldn’t it be loverly?
