HE'D HAVE TO GET UNDER, GET OUT AND GET UNDER From the Broadway Revue "The Pleasure Seekers" (1913) (Music: Maurice Abrahams / Lyrics: Grant Clarke & Edgar Leslie) Bobby North (Broadway Production) - 1913 William Halley - 1913 Al Jolson - 1913 Billy Murray - 1913 Fred Douglas - 1914 Jack Hylton & His Orch. - 1929 Freddie "Schnickelfritz" Fisher & His Orch. - 1942 Debbie Reynolds & Carleton Carpenter - 1951 Also recorded by: The Gaslight Singers; Bobby Horton ....... and others. Johnny O'Connor bought an automobile, He took his sweetheart for a ride one Sunday. Johnny was togged up in his best Sunday clothes, She nestled close to his side. Things were just dandy till he got down the road, Then something happened to the old machin'ry. That engine got his goat, Off went his hat and coat, Ev'rything needed repairs. He'd have to get under, Get out and get under To fix up his little machine. He was just dying to cuddle his queen, But ev'ry minute When he'd begin it, He'd have to get under, Get out and get under, Then he'd get back at the wheel. A dozen times they'd start to hug and kiss And then the darned old engine it would miss, And then he'd have to get under, Get out and get under, And fix up his automobile. Millionaire Wilson said to Johnny one day, "Your little sweetheart don't appreciate you, I have a daughter who is hungry for love, She likes to ride, by the way". Johnny had visions of a million in gold, He took her riding in his little auto, But ev'ry time that he went to say "Marry me", 'Twas the old story again. He'd have to get under, Get out and get under To fix up his little machine. He was just dying to cuddle his queen, But ev'ry minute When he'd begin it, He'd have to get under, Get out and get under, Then he'd get back at the wheel. A dozen times they'd start to hug and kiss And then the darned old engine it would miss, And then he'd have to get under, Get out and get under, And fix up his automobile. ALTERNATIVE CHORUS VERSES A dozen times of love he'd try to speak, And then the radiator it would leak, And then he'd have to get under, Get out and get under, And fix uop his automobile. To kiss and squeeze he'd boldly get to work, And then the brakes would slip there'd be a jerk, And then he'd have to get under, Get out and get under, And fix up his automobile. He'd start to tell the tale with lots of swank, And then he'd find no petrol in the tank And then he'd have to get under, Get out and get under, And fix up his automobile.
