MISS SADIE THOMPSON (SOUNDTRACK) Songs from the film "Miss Sadie Thompson (1953) Starring Rita Hayworth, Jose Ferrer & Aldo Ray A MARINE, A MARINE, A MARINE" (Music: Lester Lee / Lyrics: Allan Roberts) Performed by Male Chorus A Marine, a Marine, a Marine As stirling a fellow as you have ever seen His refinement is something to see He's what ev'ry sailor hopes some day to be Recruiting posters tell the world Marines are first to fight A thousand struggling women prove the poster's always right When taking out his fav'rite doll he loves to make a splash And if she cannot pay by cheque, he lets her pay by cash Yessiree! Yessiree! Yessiree! A Marine, a Marine, a Marine He's a Don Juan in olive green Soldiers and sailors may take someone's girl away But never, never a Marine A Marine, a Marine, a Marine He's upright, he's honest, his mind is always clean A Marine, a Marine, a Marine He's as square a shooter as you've ever seen When he plays poker with his pals, he never will deceive It hurts him more than some when an ace falls from his sleeve And even when he's angry and his temper's at its worst He'll never break a jaw unless he begs your pardon first Yessiree! Yessiree! Yessiree! A Marine, a Marine, a Marine He's a Don Juan in olive green Soldier and sailor folks may tell such sorry jokes But never, never a Marine ********** HEAR NO EVIL (Music: Lester Lee / Lyrics: Ned Washington) Performed by Jo Ann Greer (as the singing voice of Rita Hayworth) Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil Just be like the three little monkeys That Grandmother had on the shelf If you hear of anything evil Just keep it to yourself So, hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil Just be like the three little monkeys And don't think that ev'rything's wrong If more people did like the monkeys Life would be one sweet song So, hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil That's what the monkeys, smart little monkeys Wise little monkeys said ********** THE HEAT IS ON (Music: Lester Lee / Lyrics: Ned Washington) Performed by Jo Ann Greer (as the singing voice of Rita Hayworth) She taught school in Kansas City, she was cold and rather drab So, at all the local parties, she was not the one they'd grab But she read a book and then came the transformation She announced one night to people's consternation The heat is on! The heat is on! Ya better not get near my lips tonight I got a kiss to light the flame And if you touch my lips you might ignite And you would have yourself to blame The heat is on! The heat is on! I wanna know if men are men or mice Don't wanna wither on the bough I might have bored the evening cold as as ice But I'm a forest fire now I got an awful lot of oats that haven't been sewn They might start a chain reaction and I might explode The heat is on! The heat is on! You're gonna hear the sirens howl tonight You're gonna see the building bounce Because the lady's on the prowl tonight And it behoves me to announce The heat is on! (Dance / Instrumental Break) Let me stipulate that my defences are down I'm spontaneous combustion in a satin gown The heat is on! The heat is on! You're gonna hear the sirens howl tonight You're gonna see the building bounce Because the lady's on the prowl tonight And it behoves me to announce That the heat is on! ********** BLUE PACIFIC BLUES (SADIE THOMPSON'S SONG) (Music: Lester Lee / Lyrics: Ned Washington) Performed by Jo Ann Greer (as the singing voice of Rita Hayworth) I'm gettin' the Blue Pacific Blues The feelin' you get get from real bad news I wanna hear bells, I wanna see trains I get in this mood whenever it rains I'm gettin' the blues Alone in the dark and sultry night You'd think of the times ya ain't done right To add to the fact you're feelin' so bad The cry of the birds keeps drivin' me mad Call it the blues You lie awake and how you wish that it was morning And then you smoke a hundred cigarettes or more That devil rain continues pounding on your window And the tropic winds keep howlin' at your door Regardless of all the rain and mud The feel of the place gets in your blood But deep in the night there comes unawares The terrible thought that nobody cares You're back with the blues again To be even more specific You've got what they call the Blue Pacific Blues ********** (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2011)
