HE'S MY UNCLE Lyrics: Charles Newman - Music: Lew Pollack Dick Powell; Rose Blane and the Abe Lyman Orchestra (Verse) Who's that passing by With that hat so high? Folks all greet him, run to meet him; Do you wonder why? (Chorus) He's my uncle, I'm his nephew (niece), I'm as proud as I can be; And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens Share that pride with me. Like my uncle, I am loyal To our flag, red, white and blue; And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens - They are loyal, too. Each girl and boy in this land enjoys Our home, our church, our school; 'Neath liberty - we'll grow up to be People who honor the Golden Rule! He's my uncle, I'm his nephew (niece) And it's mighty proud I am; And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens - We're proud of Uncle Sam! (Contributed by Lou Rugani - The Music of the Stars (WLIP) - July 2011) ******************** As recorded by DICK POWELL with Victor Young & His Orch., 9th October 1940: Who's that grand old guy With that hat so high You all know him, So, 'hello' him When you catch his eye He's my uncle, I'm his nephew I'm as proud as I can be And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens Share that pride with me My uncle envies no one And there's no one he provokes And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens We're his kind of folks That spry old chap never picks a scrap But he's won all he's had And further more I feel sorry for Any big bully that gets him mad He's my uncle, I'm his nephew And it's mighty proud I am And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens We're proud of Uncle Sam He's my uncle, I'm his nephew We're as close as A-B-C And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens, My whole family For my uncle lies to no one Cries for no one's sympathy And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens Ape him to a T He never tries scaring little guys Nor brags of who he'll trem He's peaceful, yet, people can't forget No one was ever too tough for him He's my uncle, I'm his nephew And it's mighty proud I am And my sisters and my brothers And my cousins by the dozens We're proud of Uncle Sam (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
