The famously “Rexed” song I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face is sung by Professor Higgins as he starts to fall for Eliza in his own special way.
Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn!
I’ve grown accustomed to her face
She almost makes the day begin
I’ve grown accustomed to the tune that
She whistles night and noon

(Really? Quit with the tenuous segues and let’s get on with it … Ed)
Awesome, thanks! Here’s a link to a video of this song sung by Kermit in a wig.
(<slaps forehead> OK. And the recipe? …Ed)
I thought you’d never ask! This is a real bung-it-all-in, whizz-it-up type recipe. Form the mixture into fishcakes, fry them up, and enjoy.
