VERSE 01: A lonesome fellow in a swell cafe/Looked all around and ev’ryone was gay/Girlies and boys sharing their joys/He hadn’t anyone to help him have some fun/A waiter handed him a bill of fare/Stood waiting there by his side/When the waiter said now what will you have/The lonesome boy replied.
CHORUS 01: Bring me a girl/Then bring me two Manhattans/Bring me a girl/She don’t need silks or satins/If she’s my style/We’ll stay a while/Bring on Eighty seven courses/I’ve a roll to choke eight horses/Bring me a girl/And if she’s fond of dancing/I’ll take her out for a whirl/Oh waiter waiter waiter/Your tip will be much greater if you’ll bring me a beautiful girl./girl.
VERSE 02: The waiter telephoned his wife to send/Her best and sweetest little lady friend/Wifie was hip he got the tip/Girlie was soon supplied fellow was satisfied/Next day he spread the story all around/How the whole thing came about/Now the place is crowded most ev’ry night/With lonesome boys who shout.
CHORUS 02: Bring me a girl/Don’t bring me dry Martini/Bring me a girl/A nifty little queenie/If she’s the sweets/I’ll buy the eats/I’ll be glad to spend my nickles/Just as fast as Heinz makes pickles/Bring me a girl/And if she’s fond of dancing/I’ll take her out for a whirl/If chickens here are tender/Just bring one young and slender waiter bring me a beautiful girl./girl.
