No. 26 - Song - Cunningham - Hey Diddle-diddle, when man is in love

MIDI File

Cunningham: He's longing to marry a dear little bride,
So beautiful, charming and supple,
That people will say as he walks at her side,
By Jove! What a good-looking couple!
But won't he be wild when he knows that we dare
To laugh at his amorous folly,
Because we intend to take jolly good care
He doesn't get married to Molly!
For hey, diddle, diddle! when man is in love
He thinks that he's lucky all others above
To wed such a squeezable
Sit on your knees-able
Dear little dutiful duck of a dove,
such a dear little duck of a dove.
Chorus: Yes, hey, diddle, diddle! when man is in love
He thinks that he's lucky all others above
To wed such a squeezable
Sit on your knees-able
Dear little dutiful duck of a dove,
such a dear little duck of a dove.
   
Cunningham: So come where the banquet is lavishly laid
Our welcome is sure to be hearty;
We'll learn from the lips of some quaint little maid
The joys of a Japanese party!
For dashing young sailors there's always a charm
For flirting with short or with tall ones;
I know I can do with a girl on each arm,
And two on my knees if they're small ones!
For hey, diddle, diddle! when man is in love
He thinks that he's lucky all others above
To wed an embraceable
Pat on the face-able
Dear little dutiful duck of a dove.
such a dear little duck of a dove.
Chorus: Yes, hey, diddle, diddle! when man is in love
He thinks that he's lucky all others above
To wed an embraceable
Pat on the face-able
Dear little dutiful duck of a dove,
such a dear little duck of a dove.
