MA! (He's Makin' Eyes At Me) M: Con Conrad / L: Sidney Clare 1921 as sung by Eddie Cantor Ma! He's makin' eyes at me, Ma, he's awful nice to me.Ma, he's almost breaking my heart. I'm beside him -- Mercy! Let his conscience guide him! Ma, he wants to marry me, Be my honeybee. Every minute he gets bolder -- Ma, he's leanin' on my shoulder! Ma! He's kissin' me! Little Lily was oh, so silly and shy, And all the fellows knew she wouldn't bill and coo. Every single night some smart fellow would try To cuddle up to her, but she would cry, "Ma! He's makin' eyes at me, Ma, he's awful nice to me. Ma, he's almost breaking my heart. He's good-lookin' -- Wait until he tastes my cookin'! Ma, he wants to marry me, Be my honeybee. Hurry, mom, and call for papa -- If not pa, then call a copper! Ma! He's kissin' me!" Lilly was so shy everybody could tell She'd always stay at home, she'd never ever roam. All the neighbors knew little Lilly so well, 'Cause when the boys would call they'd hear her yell, "Ma! He's makin' eyes at me, Ma, he's awful nice to me. Ma, he's almost breaking my heart. I'm beside him -- Mercy! Let his conscience guide him! Ma, he wants to marry me, Be my pride and joy. I just found out his name is Daniel -- Cuter than a cocker Spaniel! Ma, I love that boy! Little Lily was oh, so silly and shy, And all the fellows knew she wouldn't bill and coo. (Contributed by Genie T Singer - August 2009)
