ON THE AVENUE (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "On The Avenue" (1937) Starring Dick Powell, Madeleine Carroll, Alice Faye, & The Ritz Brothers HE AIN'T GOT RHYTHM (Irving Berlin) Performed by Alice Faye & The Ritz Brothers I know a professor of great renown And he is the loneliest man in town He's as smart as a man can be But he never has company Why is he the loneliest man in town? He ain't got rhythm Ev'ry night he sits in the house alone 'Cause he ain't got rhythm Ev'ry night he sits there and wears a frown He attracted some attention when he found the fourth dimension But he ain't got rhythm, so no one's with 'im The loneliest man in town A lonely man is he bending over his books Hhis wife and family keep giving him dirty looks 'Cause he ain't got rhythm When they call him up, it's to call him down With a daring aviator he encircled the equator But he ain't got rhythm, as no one's with 'im The loneliest man in town He ain't got rhythm Ev'ry night he sits in the house alone 'Cause he ain't got rhythm Ev'ry night he sits there and wears a frown With a problem scientific, he's colossal and terrific But he ain't got rhythm, so no one's with 'im The loneliest man in town A lonely man is he bending over his books His wife and family keep giving him dirty looks 'Cause he ain't got rhythm When they call him up, it's to call him down In the month of January he compiled a dictionary But he ain't got rhythm, as no one's with 'im The loneliest man in town ********** THE GIRL ON THE POLICE GAZETTE (Irving Berlin) Performed by Dick Powell Some fellows see the girl that they love in a dream Some fellows see their love in a rippling stream I saw the girl that I can't forget On the cover of a police gazette If I could find her, life would be peaches and cream Oh, my search will never cease For the girl on the Police Gazette For the pretty young brunette On the pink Police Gazette And above my mantlepiece There's a page of the Police Gazette With the pretty young brunette On the pink Police Gazette I love to stop at my fav'rite barber shop Just to take another look at The girl I haven't met.......Yet And my longing will increase For the girl on the Police Gazette For the pretty young brunette On the pink Police Gazette ********** SLUMMING ON PARK AVENUE (Irving Berlin) Performed by Alice Faye & The Ritz Brothers Reprised by Dick Powell Put on your slumming clothes and get your car Let's go sightseeing where the high-toned people are Come on, there's lots of fun in store for you See how the other half lives on Park Avenue Let's go slumming, take me slumming Let's go slumming on Park Avenue Let us hide behind a pair of fancy glasses And make faces when a member of the classes passes Let's go smelling where they're dwelling Sniffing ev'rything the way they do Let us go to it, they do it Why can't we do it too? Let's go slumming, nose thumbing, on Park Avenue Let's go slumming, take me slumming Let's go slumming on Park Avenue Where the social hearts For Broadway lights are throbbing And they spend their nights In smart cafés hobknobbing, snobbing Come let's eye them, pass right by them Looking down our noses as they do Let us go to it, they do it Why can't we do it too? Let's go slumming, crumb bumming, on Park Avenue ********** THIS YEAR'S KISSES (Irving Berlin) Performed by Alice Faye I didn't cry when romance was through I looked around for somebody new Since my romance, I've kissed one or two But I'm afraid their kisses won't do This year's crop of kisses Don't seem as sweet to me This year's crop just misses What kisses used to be This year's new romance Doesn't seem to have a chance Even helped by Mister Moon above This year's crop of kisses Is not for me For I'm still wearing last year's love ********** YOU'RE LAUGHING AT ME (Irving Berlin) Performed by Dick Powell I love you, which is easy to see But I have to keep guessing how you feel about me You listen to the words that I speak But I feel that you listen with your tongue in your cheek You're laughing at me I can't get sentimental For you're laughing at me, I know I want to be romantic But I haven't a chance You've got a sense of humour And humour is death to romance You're laughing at me Why do you think it's funny When I say that I love you so You've got me worried And I'm all at sea For while I'm crying for you You're laughing at me ********** I'VE GOT MY LOVE TO KEEP ME WARM (Irving Berlin) Performed by Dick Powell & Alice Faye The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing But I can weather the storm What do I care how much it may storm I've got my love to keep me warm I can't remember a worse December Just watch those icicles form What do I care if icicles form I've got my love to keep me warm Off with my overcoat, off with my glove I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher So I will weather the storm What do I care how much it may storm I've got my love to keep me warm ********** Parts of the following songs appeared in the "The Richest Girl in America" sketch: "There's No Place Like Home (Home, Sweet Home)" (Music: H.R.
