HOORAY FOR SPINACH From the film "Naughty But Nice" (1939) (Harry Warren / Johnny Mercer) Ann Sheridan (Film Soundtrack) - 1939 Paul Whiteman & His Orch. - 1939 As a kid, I hated spinach and all its ilk I abominated cod liver oil and milk That was simply that and I'd leave them flat Though you stuck a gat at my brow But I must admit, my opinion's different now... Hooray for spinach, hooray for milk They put the roses in your cheek soft as silk They helped complete you Till I could meet you, baby Hooray for sunshine, hooray for air They put the permanent in your curly hair They helped to raise you Till I could praise you, baby Bless the summer that freckled your nose Those galoshes that sheltered your toes Bless the fellow who taught you to kiss If he taught you to kiss like this Hooray for spinach, it took you far Bless all the nourishment in each candy bar They helped you grow up, till I could show up And love you as you are ****** As recorded by Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra: Hooray for spinach, hooray for milk They put the roses in your cheek soft as silk They helped complete you Till I could meet you, baby Hooray for sunshine, hooray for air They put the permanent in your curly hair They helped to raise you Till I could praise you, baby Bless the summer that freckled your nose Those galoshes that sheltered your toes Bless the fellow who taught you to kiss If he had a hand in teaching you to kiss like this Hooray for spinach, it took you far Bless all the nourishment in each candy bar They helped you grow up, till I could show up And love you as you are Hooray for spinach Ray-ray-ray for spinach Put it on your diet and try it It's the best food in the land (Orchestral Break) Hooray for sunshine, hooray for air They put the permanent in your hair They helped to raise you Till I could praise you, baby Bless the summer that freckled your nose Those galoshes that sheltered your toes Bless the fellow who taught you to kiss If he taught you to kiss like this Hooray for spinach, it took you far Bless all the nourishment in each candy bar Hip-hip-hip-hooray for spinach Hip-hip-hip-hooray for spinach It helped you grow up, till I could show up And love you as you are (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2005) ******
