DIRTY HANDS! DIRTY FACE! (Grant Clarke / Al Jolson / Edgar Leslie / James V. Monaco) Marion Harris - 1923 Irving Kaufman - 1923 Ben Selvin & His Orch. - 1923 Ernest Stevens - 1923 Bailey's Lucky Seven - 1923 Al Jolson (feat. in the film "The Jazz Singer") - 1927 Judy Garland - 1956 Dorothy Loudon - 1991 Patti Lu Pone - 1993 Wonderful pals are always hard to find Some folks have one, some folks have none And I was alone for years, but fate was kind And in the end, sent me a friend Although he's not much higher than my knee Still he's the greatest thing on earth to me Dirty hands, dirty face Leads the neighbours a chase But his smile is as cute as can be Making noise, breaking toys He's always fighting the boys But his eyes, they're a vision to see And when my work is done Coming home from the setting sun To the gate he will start to run And then I'll kiss my boy Dirty hands, dirty face Little devil, that's what they say But to me he's an angel of joy Dirty hands, dirty face Leads the neighbours a chase But his smile, his little smile, is as cute as can be Making noise, breaking toys, Ha-ha-ha He's always fighting the boys But his eyes, they're his Mother's And they're a vision to me And when my work is done Coming home, coming home to the setting sun From the gate he'll start to run And then, Ohhh! I'll kiss my boy Dirty hands, dirty face Little devil, that's what they say But to me he's an angel of joy (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2006)
