HUGGIN' AND CHALKIN' (Clarence Leonard Hayes / Kermit Goell) Lou Praeger (aka Lou Preager) & His Orch. Also recorded by : Hoagy Carmichael; Bing Crosby; Steve James; Cory Jamison; Kay Kyser; Jerry Reed; Charlie Spivak. I got a gal that's mighty sweet With big blue eyes and tiny feet Her name is Rosabelle Malone And she tips the scale at twenty stone. Oh, gee, but ain't it grand to have a girl so big and fat That when you go to hug her, you don't know where you're at You have to take a piece of chalk in your hand And hug a ways and chalk a mark to see where you began One day I was a-huggin' and a-chalkin' and a-chalkin' and a-huggin' away When I met another fella with some chalk in his hand Comin' around the other way over the mountain Comin' around the other way (instrumental interlude) HER: Oh Gee, it aint so grand to be a girl so big and fat That when you go to hug me you donít know where youíre at HIM: I have to take a piece of chalk in my hand And hug away and chalk a mark to see where I began HIM: (Spoken) Now where is that chalk? Ah, here it is Iíll put one cross here, and another one here. HER: (Spoken) Darling. HIM: (Spoken) Ah, but seriously you know that Iím crazy about you, and I mean all of you, every little bit. Both: (Sung) We both feel weíre meant for each other. HIM: Yet when we walk through the street people think that Iím out with my mother. One day I was a-huggin' and a-chalkin' and a-beggin' her to be my bride When I met another fella with some chalk in his hand Comin' around the other side, It was Lou Praeger Comin' around the other side.
