Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Highlight. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
I took my girl to a rock and roll - it was a social bop
and after the ball was over of course the music stop.
I took her to a restaurant the finest on the street.
She said she wasn't hungry but listen to what she eat -
a dozen hot dogs with sauerkraut, hamburgers and rine
then she ordered her scrambled eggs with such a gleam in her eye.
Chicken stew with muffins, too - her appetite was immense.
When she called for pie I thought I would die cos I only had 50 cents
Of course she was a delicate girl I never thought she could eat
but I had no more money in my coat to give her a lovely treat.
Then next I asked her what she would drink and she said with an awful 'Thanks -
young gentleman I'm not thirsty' but listen to what she drank;
a pint of gin, a pink lady, a bloody mary,
a lemon pop with some rum on top and a drink they call The Zombie,
a ginger ale, a gin cocktail, I thought she had better sense.
When she called for rum I got deaf and dumb cos I only had fifty cents
Well to finish up with this delicate girl she clean out the ice cream can
and she said 'Sweetheart I must tell maman you are really a fine young man
and next time you go out for fun I'll fetch the family round.'
So I bid the waiter the fifty cents and then the bouncing began.
Oh he bust my nose, and he tore my clothes - I was dished and swab swept the floor
then I realized I had two black eyes and was tumbling through the door.
He grabbed me where my pants was torn and kicked me over the fence
and he said 'Young man never treat that girl when you've only got fifty cents.'
