LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR, THE (Hy Zaret / Lou Singer) Josh White - 1943 Now the tavern was crowded, and two couples were there They were served by a lass with a rose in her hair Now her manner was charming and her beauty was rare And true did she have a most delicate air The most delicate air And they called her the lass with that delicate air Now some soldiers were passing and they looked through the glass They were struck by the charm of this delicate lass And they waited in longing, her kisses to share For true that she had a most delicate air The most delicate air And they toasted that lass with that delicate air Now a sailor arose who had been everywhere And he said he had never seen a lass quite so fair And he vowed he would marry that little lass then and there 'Cause true that she had a most delicate air The most delicate air And he wanted that lass with that delicate air Well he offered his heart and he offered his hand And he painted a future so rosy and grand Dear sir, she replied, ask the bartender there 'Cause he's wed to the lass with that delicate air The most delicate air So goodbye to the lass with that delicate air (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
