|Ziegfeld follies of 1920 (Revue)|
VERSE 01: I never cared for birds or flowers or buzzing of the bees, until today, until today/I never cared for movie stars or lovesick melodies until today, until today/I met someone who thrilled me thru and thru/I’ll confess/I met my Waterloo.
CHORUS 01: Like a sweet cooin’ dove/I’m just bubbling with love/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/For my sweet baby girl sets my brain in a whirl/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/Oh her beautiful eyes and her wonderful smile/Have me hypnotized oh she’s driving me wild/When I patted her hand why she thought it was grand/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/Then I started to sing ‘bout a cute wedding ring/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/I told her of my dream about a bungalow/I felt myself a slippin’, when she said let’s go/I just fainted away/When I heard her say/Umh Hum/Umh Hum
VERSE 02: I always loved my home and swore that I would never roam, until today, until today/And ev’ry night at eight o’clock my Mother tucked me in my cot to stay, until today/Mister Cupid’s dart pierced my lonely heart/Single life and I just had to part.
CHORUS 02: All out of breath/I’m just tickled to death/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/For today is the day that I took her away/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/As we walked down the aisle it was just like a dream/She was chuck full of smiles when I called her my queen/Oh the Parson was grand when he joined hand in hand/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/Ev’rything that he said she just nodded her head/Umh Hum/Umh Hum/We started on our honeymoon just side by side/I pressed her little hand and the I softly sighed/Are you sleepy my dear then she cuddle up near/Umh Hum/Umh Hum
