Aren't You Kind of Glad We Did?

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the box set Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George and Ira Gershwin Song Book (1959).

Oh, it really wasn't my intention
To disregard convention
It was just an impulse
That had to be obeyed

Though it seems convention we've been scorning
I'll still not go in mourning
Though my reputation
Is blemished, I'm afraid

With just one kiss
What heaven, what rapture, what bliss

Honestly, I thought you wouldn't
Naturally, you thought you couldn't
And probably we shouldn't
But aren't you kind of glad we did?

Actually, it all was blameless
Nevertheless, they'll call it shameless
So let's keep the lady nameless
But aren't you kind of glad we did?

Socially, I'll be an outcast
Obviously, we dined alone
On my good name there will be doubt cast
With never a sign of any chaperone

No matter how they may construe it
Whether or not, we have to rue it
Whatever made us do it
Say, aren't you kind of glad we did?

(Instrumental bridge)

Whatever made us do it
Say, aren't you kind of glad we did?
