No. 13 - Song - Joy and Chorus - "Oh! what a nice young man."

MIDI File

Joy: It's hard to make my mind up
When I am at a ball,
For all of the men come after me then,
I cannot dance with all!
So when I see them lined up,
I glance along the line;
If somebody's nice, I look at him twice,
And mark him down for mine!
I smile his way as if to say:
Oh! what a nice young man!
Young man! Young man!
If you would dance, you can! You can! You can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
Dance a bit, and then we'll sit,
And that's all right!
Chorus: Oh! what a nice young man!
Young man! Young man!
If you would dance, you can! You can! You can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
Dance a bit, and then we'll sit,
And that's all right!
   
Joy: I've officers by dozens,
So fond of them I am;
And some of the best are boys from the West,
The sons of Uncle Sam!
I love them just like cousins,
Adopt them on the spot;
And some of them try to look a bit shy,
But most of them do not!
Now Sammy's come, I guess he's some!
Oh! what a nice young man!
Young man! Young man!
You're an American! I can! I can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
Dance a bit, and then we'll sit,
And that's all right!
Chorus: Oh! what a nice young man!
Young man! Young man!
You're an American! I can! I can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
Dance a bit, and then we'll sit,
And that's all right!
   
Joy: But now and then at dances
There were no boys for me,
For everyone was strafing the Hun
Somewhere across the sea!
I had to take my chances,
And get instead of them
Some elderly chap who cared not a rap
For any A. P. M.
He's sixty-two, but he will do!
Oh! what a nice old man! Old man! Old man!
Dance with me all you can! You can! You can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
You look fit to do your bit,
So that's all right!
Chorus: Oh! what a nice old man!
Old man! Old man!
Dance with me all you can! You can! You can!
You are the best tonight! Tonight! Tonight!
You look fit to do your bit,
So that's all right!
