No. 20 - Song - Teddy and Chorus - "Bring her along."

MIDI File

Teddy: Supposing a girl should drop me,
And fancy another man,
That isn't a thing to stop me
From having what fun I can.
I reckon her chance is gone,
I'm taking another on,
And any of all the girls I see
Will do very well for me!
Just bring her along,
Don't mind her hair or eyes
If she's got a neat little pair of feet
And a waist of average size.
That's all I want,
You can't go very wrong;
For if she can dance, I'm taking my chance —
Just bring her along!
Chorus: Just bring her along,
Don't mind her hair or eyes
If she's got a neat little pair of feet
And a waist of average size.
That's all he wants,
You can't go very wrong;
For if she can dance, he's taking his chance —
Just bring her along!
   
Teddy: Now if you've a Paris mam'selle,
The sort that they call petite,
Well, that is the sort of damsel
I simply should love to meet!
She's going to suit all right,
I'll dance with her half the night,
Whatever she talks, it's all the same,
I'll say, "Oh, comment je t'aime."
Just bring her along,
And I'll know what to say.
There's a word amour, I have got it sure,
And the rest I'll parler anglais!
That's all she wants,
If I can put it strong;
I'll give her a kiss, comprenez-vous this?
Just bring her along!
Chorus: Just bring her along,
And he'll know what to say.
There's a word amour, he has got it sure,
And the rest he'll parler anglais!
That's all she wants,
If he can put it strong;
He'll give her a kiss, comprenez-vous this?
Just bring her along!
   
Teddy: Then if there's a German Fraülein
That feels that she wants to pine
For anything in the boy line,
Why then it is her for mine!
I'm not very great at Dutch,
But that doesn't matter much;
For if she can only fit my chest,
Then I can do all the rest!
Just bring her along,
And then she needn't care;
I can do a bit of Sie kommen mit,
And she answers, "Bitte, mein Herr!"
That's all we want,
We'll join the giddy throng;
Grammatical faults don't worry a waltz —
Just bring her along!
Chorus: Just bring her along,
And then she needn't care;
He can do a bit of Sie kommen mit,
And she answers, "Bitte, mein Herr!"
That's all they want,
They'll join the giddy throng;
Grammatical faults don't worry a waltz —
Just bring her along!
