Every time I hear this song I picture Annette singing it to her husband Herman. "There's no accounting for taste, that's why I picked you." Can you just imagine her singing it into the microphone with Herman in the background? She sings it very coyly. Very playful. Very Happy if not cocky. I am pretty and worth something because of you. She is on top of the world because of her love. Don't know if this every came about, but is an enticing idea. Remember, Annette didn't want to do any singing, she was always doing her singing to satisfy her father, then her husband, Herman. Maybe in her coy little way she is saying, Okay I didn't want to do this but since she made me do it, I am going to have a little fun with it. "There's no accounting for taste, that's why I picked you."

In a Great Big Way

There's no accounting for taste
I'm Sure
that's why I picked you
It seems a terrible waste
but you're the best that I could do
I was a beautiful daughter
I was an innocent lamb
You lead me on to the slaughter
and now I am just a ham!
What are you doing to me
You'll be the ruin to me
I care for you in a great big way
You smiled at me and I fell
that's why it silly but swell
I'm like a leaping gazelle to say
I knew the minute I met you
that I would get a load of romance
I'd stop at nothing to get you
If there's a possible chance
I'd give a year of my life
to hear you say
I care for you in a great big way
What are you doing to me
You'll be the ruin to me
I care for you in a great big way
You smiled at me and I fell
that's why it silly but swell
I'm like a leaping gazelle to say
I knew the minute I met you
that I would get a load of romance
I'd stop at nothing to get you
If there's a possible chance
I'd give a year of my life
to hear you say
I care for you in a great big way
That's all!
