This is a version from the movie The History Boys. 

[info via Wikipedia]:
"Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" is a show tune and popular song from
 the 1940 Rodgers and Hart musical Pal Joey. The song was introduced by
 Vivienne Segal in the 1940 Broadway production.

The original lyrics present an unabashed celebration of feminine sexuality
 that has been bowdlerized in most covers to remove the song's blatant 
sexual allusions. One such line is "When love came and told me I shouldn't
 sleep," replacing the original "Until I could sleep where I shouldn't 
sleep"; another switch changed "And worship the trousers that cling to him"
 to "And long for the day I'll cling to him." The lyric "horizontally 
speaking, he's at his best" is often sung, "Harsh until he's speaking..." A 
reprise, including the line "Those ants that invaded my pants," is generally
 omitted entirely.

Dm7    G7       CM7      Am7  
He's a fool and don't I know it
Dm7    G7       CM7      A7
But a fool can have his charms
Dm7    G7      Em7      Am9  
I'm in love and don't I show it
Dm7    G9       CM7  A7
Like a babe in arms

Dm7    G7       CM7      Am7  
Love's the same old sad sensation
Dm7    G7       CM7      A7
Lately I've not slept a wink
Dm7    G7      Em7      Am9  
since this half-pint imitation 
Dm7    G9       CM7  A7
put me on the blink

C          Gdim     Dm7         Cdim 
I'm wild again,       beguiled again, 
    C         E7        Fmaj7        Fdim 
A simpering, whimpering child again - 
     C      D7             G7      Dm7 G7 
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am  I. 
 
     C            Gdim      Dm          Cdim 
I'll sing to him,     each spring to him, 
     C           E7              Fmaj7      Fdim 
And long for the day when I'll cling to him - 
    C        D7      Dm7    G7        C   C/B  A7  Gdim 
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I, 

C              Gdim       Dm7           Cdim 
Couldn't sleep,      and wouldn't sleep, 
       C            E7        Fmaj7            Fdim 
When love came and told me I shouldn't sleep - 
     C      D7       G7    Cmaj7   Fmaj7 A7 
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am    I. 

Dm 
Lost my heart, but what of it? 
Am 
He is cold, I agree; 
Dm                     G7 
He can laugh, but I love it, 
    Em        Edim      Dm7    G7 
Although the laugh's on me. 
 
     C            Gdim      Dm          Cdim 
I'll sing to him,     each spring to him, 
     C           E7              Fmaj7      Fdim 
And long for the day when I'll cling to him - 
    C        D7      Dm7    G7        C   C/B  A7  Gdim 
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I, 

Fdim     C     D7             Dm7     G7 C   Fdim   C
Be - witched, bothered and bewildered am I.

C              Gdim       Dm7           Cdim 
I've sinned a lot, I'm mean a lot
C           E7              Fmaj7      Fdim 
But I'm like sweet seventeen a lot
     C      D7             G7      Dm7 G7
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I

Dm
Lost my heart, but what of it?
Am
My mistake I agree
Dm                     G7 
He's a laugh, but I love it
    Em        Edim      Dm7    G7 
Because the laugh's on me.

C              Gdim       Dm7           Cdim 
I'll sing to him, each spring to him,
     C           E7              Fmaj7      Fdim 
And worship the trousers that cling to him.
     C      D7       G7    Cmaj7   Fmaj7 A7 
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I.

Fdim     C     D7             Dm7     G7 C   Fdim   C
Be - witched, bothered and bewildered am I.

Hi please tell me why you've made it impossible to copy the lyric to a song. I sit at home with my guitar and amuse myself. That's all. I'm over 70 years old so I'm not out to make money off you. But let me know if there's a way I can pay for it and I will happily do so.

Thank you for your help in the past.
