As recorded by BILLY MURRAY: Don't bring Lulu! Don't bring Lulu! Your presence is requested, wrote little Johnny White But with this invitation, there is a stipulation When you attend this party, you'll all be treated right But there's a wild and woolly woman you boys can't invite You can bring Pearl, she's a darn nice girl, but don't bring Lulu You can bring Rose, with the turned up nose, but don't bring Lulu Lulu always wants to do what the folks don't want her to When she struts her stuff around, London Bridge is falling down You can bring cake or a porterhouse steak, but don't bring Lulu Lulu gets blue and goes coo-koo, like the clock upon the shelf She's the kind of smartie breaks up every party Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, I'll bring her myself Last week we had a party, a real high-toned affair And then along came Lulu, wild as any Zulu She started in to Charleston, and how the boys did stare But when she did the hula-hula, then she got the air You can bring Flo, her dad's got dough, but don't bring Lulu You can bring Lil, she's an awful pill, but don't bring Lulu Lulu has the reddest hair, auburn here and henna there How can we boys keep our heads, bulls go wild when they see red You can bring peas and crullers and cheese, but don't bring Lulu When she gets sore and slams the door, the plates fly off the shelf She can make a fella wild on sarsaparilla Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, she'll come here herself Don't bring Lulu! Don't bring Lulu! You can bring ham and crackers and jam, but don't bring Lulu Lulu goes wild and when she's wild, she climbs up on the shelf She can make a pastor be a dancing master Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, I'll bring her myself ******************** As recorded by BILLY JONES & ERNEST HARE (THE HAPPINESS BOYS): BJ: Won't you attend a party down at my house tonight? EH: Is that an invitation without a stipulation? BJ: There's just one stipulation EH: Ha-ha! I thought I had you right BJ: I draw the line on just one woman EH: Who can I invite? BJ: You can bring Pearl, she's a darn nice girl, but don't bring Lulu EH: Can I bring Nan? BJ: Bet your life you can, but don't bring Lulu EH: Lulu has the kind of smile that makes fellahs walk a mile BJ: And when she struts her stuff around, London Bridge is fallin' down EH: If I bring cake and porterhouse steak, can I bring Lulu? BJ: Lulu gets blue and she goes coo-koo like the clock upon the shelf EH: She's the kind of smarty who breaks up ev'ry party BJ: Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, I'll bring her myself BJ: We both went to a party, a real high-toned affair EH: And then along came Lulu, as wild as any Zulu BJ: She started in to Charleston, and how the boys did stare EH: But when she did the hula-hoo BOTH: Then she got the air BJ: You can bring Peg with the wooden leg, but don't bring Lulu EH: Can I bring Vi with the old glass eye? BJ: But don't bring Lulu Lulu eats just like a horse, sauerkraut and garlic sauce EH: I smelled onions on her breath, and I cried myself to death Can I bring Ruth with the rubber tooth? BJ: But don't bring Lulu Lulu's okay, but when she gets gay, you should see the cops arrive EH: When she starts in singing, police clubs start in swinging BOTH: Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, not while she's alive BOTH: You can bring Flo 'cause her pa's got dough, but don't bring Lulu You can bring Min and her double chin, but don't bring Lulu Lulu thinks she's doing fine when she sings "Sweet Adeline" Oh, but when she hits high C, she drives out the family You can bring sweets and pickled pigs feet, but don't bring Lulu Lulu goes bugs and she chews up rugs when she yells, "Ain't this the life!" BJ: She's the kind starts yawning EH: We won't go home till mornin' BOTH: Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, she might know the wife EH: Ha-ha-ha! Say, Bill, I don't see why I can't bring Lulu. She's a nice girl. And say, Bill, would you call Lulu a flapper? BJ: Sure, but I've got a new name for flappers. EH: What is it, Bill? BJ: Well, I call them bungalows. EH: Bungalows? Why do you call 'em bungalows? BJ: Well, because they're shingled in back, painted in front, and they have no attic. BOTH: Ha-ha-ha-ha! BOTH: You can bring Claire with her "I don't care", but don't bring Lulu You can bring Lil, she's an awful pill, but don't bring Lulu Lulu has the sweetest smile, she starts laughing all the while EH: When she looks half at her best BJ: One eye looks east EH: And the other looks west BOTH: You can bring tripe, provided it's ripe, but don't bring Lulu Lulu makes noise when she's with the boys, and we're sure to get in Dutch BJ: She's the kind that teases EH: And then does what she pleases BOTH: Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, she talks too darn much! ******************** As parodied by FRANK SINATRA & JACK CARSON (Radio Transcript): JC: I'll bring Ben, that freckle-faced man FS: But don't bring Crosby JC: I'll bring Hope, with a nose like a rope FS: But don't bring Crosby JC: Pork pie hat on top of his head FS: Not as much fuzz as there used to was JC: When he wears those shirts to town FS: The window shades come a-tumblin' down JC: Como can come, and Carson, that bum FS: But don't a-bring you know who JC: I'm telling you that boo-boo-bah-boo has to stay up on the shelf FS: He came to town on the boxcars, now look at all his Oscars JC: Don't bring Crosby, don't Bing Crosby FS: I'll bring him myself BOTH: That jolly rascal, I'll bring him myself ******************** As performed by DOROTHY PROVINE in the TV Series "The Roaring 20's": You can bring Pearl, she's a darn nice girl, but don't bring Lulu You can bring Rose with her turned up nose, but don't bring Lulu Lulu always wants to do what the boys don't want her to When she struts her stuff around, London bridge is falling down You can bring cake or Porterhouse steak, but don't bring Lulu Lulu gets blue and she goes coo-koo like a clock upon the shelf She's the kind of smartie that breaks up every party Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, she'll come by herself You can bring Nan with the old deadpan, but don't bring Lulu You can bring Tess with her no and yes, but don't bring Lulu Lulu has the reddest hair, redder here and redder there How can frat boys keep their heads, bulls go wild when they see red You can bring peas and crullers and cheese, but don't bring Lulu Give her two beers and she tears portiers and she throws cups off the shelf When she loves with feeling, the boys all hit the ceiling Hullabalooloo, don't bring Lulu, she'll come by herself (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2015)
