IT'S THE GIRL (Music: Abel Baer / Lyrics: Dave Oppenheim) Leo Reisman & His Orch. - 1931 The Boswell Sisters with The Dorsey Brothers - 1931 Lee Morse & Her Blue Grass Boys - 1931 Bob Haring & His Orch. (vocal: Chick Bullock) - 1931 Freddie Rich's Radio Orch.

It isn't the progress that you always want to do, It isn't the mountain flowers or the mornin' dew, It isn't the love nest that brings love to you, It's the girl that makes you happy and it's the girl that makes you blue! You up and down men, What a lonely world would be without them! It isn't the songbirds, the song that they sing, It isn't the sunshine that makes you like Spring, So what is this magic that makes all the thing? It's the girl, oh, it's the girl! Some folks need atmosphere when they're makin' love, They say old mother nature makes love grand! Still, lovers will complain that they need a shove, If you're a Romeo, you'll understand! It isn't the paddle, it's not the canoe, It isn't the river or skies that are blue, It isn't the love beams that bring joy to you, Wherever you go, whatever you do, it's the girl! It isn't the progress that you wanna do, It isn't the mountains, the flowers or the mornin' dew, It isn't the love nest that brings love to you, It's the girl, it's the girl! It's not the places you go, It's not the crowd, It's not the folks you know, Oh listen while I shout out loud! (scat) It's the girl! (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2010) ********************* As recorded by LEE MORSE and Her Blue Grass Boys (Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Mannie Klein, Irving Brodsky & Eddie Lang), 8th July 1931: Some folks need atmosphere when they're makin' love They say old Mother Nature makes love grand I've got my own idea pertaining to love If you're a Romeo, you'll understand It isn't the paddle, it's not the canoe It isn't the river or skies that are blue It isn't the love dreams that bring joy to you It's the girl, it's the girl It isn't the brooklet that you wander to It isn't the mountains, the flowers or dew It isn't the love nest that brings love to you It's the girl, it's the girl Even though at times you often doubt them What a lonely world t'would be without them It isn't the songbirds, the song that they sing It isn't the sunshine that makes you love Spring So what is this magic that makes love the thing It's the girl, it's the girl (Instrumental Break) It isn't the moonbeams or skies that are blue It isn't the starlight encouraging you It isn't the June night makes you bill and coo It's the girl, oh boy, it's the girl It isn't the crickets, the buzzing of bees It isn't the birdies that chirp in the trees It isn't because you are feeling a breeze It's the girl, oh boy, it's the girl If it storms you never feel the raindrops You don't even care just when the rain stops It isn't the weather that governs the case It can't take a slow poke and quicken it's pace It isn't surroundings, the time or the place It's the girl, oh boy it's the girl (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2017)
