IN MY ARMS (Ted Grouya / Frank Loesser) Dick Haymes (with The Song Spinners) - 1943 Also recorded by: Eddie Cantor; Ina Ray Hutton. His cousin had sent him a sweater And his sister wrote a letter But he wanted something much better This boy who was sailing away For his buddies were with their sweethearts All around him with their sweethearts Now he'd never had any sweethearts And over and over he'd say In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone I just gotta have a honey holdin' me tight You can keep your knittin' and purlin' If I'm gonna go to Berlin Gimme a girl in my arms tonight His grandma had sent him some candy And as he chewed on the candy He said my morale is just dandy And still there's a tear in my eye For his buddies were there with their sweethearts Kissing bye-bye with their sweethearts Now he'd never had any sweethearts And over and over he'd cry In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone And I thank you for the many letters you'll write As for something nice and cute and female I'll never get it in the V-mail Gimme a girl in my arms tonight In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone I'll be headin' for the very thick of the fight You can wine and dine and cigarette me But if you really wanna get me Gimme a girl in my arms tonight In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone Now does anyone wanna please treat me right You can keep your shavin' cream and lotion If I'm a-gonna cross the ocean Give me a girl in my arms tonight (Contributed by SMazac128 - January 2006) ******************** As recorded by DICK HAYMES & THE SONG SPINNERS: In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone I just gotta have a honey holdin' me tight You can keep your knittin' and your purlin' If I'm a-gonna go to Berlin Gimme a girl in my arms tonight (In my arms, in my arms, in my arms, in my arms) (Ain't I never gonna get a girl in my arms, never gonna get a girl) (In my arms, in my arms, in my arms, in my arms) (Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms, never in my arms) (Comes the dawn, you'll be gone) (I just gotta have a honey holdin' me tight) (You can keep your knittin' and your purlin') (If I'm a-gonna go to Berlin) (Gimme a girl in my arms tonight) His cousin had sent him a letter And his sister wrote a letter But he wanted something much better This boy who was sailin' away (For his buddies were there with their sweethearts) (All around him with their sweethearts) (Now he'd never had any sweethearts) (And over and over he'd say) In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a girl in my arms In my arms, in my arms Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms (Comes the dawn, I'll be gone) I'll be headin' for the the very thick of the fight You can wine and dine and cigarette me But if you really wanna get me Gimme a girl in my arms tonight (In my arms, in my arms) Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms (In my arms, in my arms) Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms Comes the dawn, I'll be gone And I thank you for the many letters you'll write As for something nice and cute and female I'll never get it in the V-mail Gimme a girl in my arms tonight (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012) ********************
