Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Richard Rodgers
From the Show: The King and I 1951 (S)
He is pleased with me.
My Lord and Master
Declares he's pleased with me,
What does he mean?
What does he know of me, this Lord and Master?
When he has looked at me, what has he seen?
Something young, soft and slim,
Painted cheek, tap'ring limb,
Smiling lips all for him.
Eyes that shine just for him,
So he thinks just for him!
Though the man may be
My Lord and Master,
Though he may study me as hard as he can,
The smile beneath my smile
He'll never see
He'll never know I love another man,
He'll never know I love another man!
