Dum-dee-dum-doo-diddle-dee-dum The fortune teller told me I was gonna clean up ********** PETE THE PIPER MAN Performed by Paulette Goddard with Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights Say, when he starts to play, the kids begin to trail him And they all say "Hooray for Pete the Piper" When he plays a song, all the kids'll never fail him They sing a song along with Pete the Piper People gather round when they hear the sound The Campbells are comin', Hooray, Hooray When their lively feet catch the Piper's beat They start to sway And then it isn't long till all the folks are dancin' Their hearts are gay when he will pay them a song When he's done all that, they pass the hat That's when they can beat the Piper Man (Instrumental Break) (People gather round when they hear the sound) The Campbells are coming (Hooray, Hooray) Now it won't be long till all the folks are dancing Their hearts are gay when he will play them a song When he's done all that, they pass the hat That's when they can beat the Piper Man That's when they can beat the Piper Man ********** WHEN JOHNNY TOOTS HIS HORN Performed by James Stewart (You gotta get up, you gotta get up, you're in the Army now) Johnny blows the bugle, knows the calls from A to Z But he's always at his best when blowing Reveille When Johnny toots his horn Disturbing the peace at break of the dawn (You gotta get up) You're in the Army now Before your eyes are open, you're dressing on the run Then standing at attention with the Sergeant's hat and the Corporal's gun (Oh, Johnny blows and blows) He tottle-ee-toots you into your clothes And makes you rue the day that you were born There's nothing anyone can do (The Captain has to make it too) (You gotta get up) When Johnny toots his horn (Instrumental/Dance Break) He toots you out of slumber, he toots you out of bed He toots you into line and then he goes somewhere and he hangs his head (But still he blows and blows and blows, blows and blows, blows and blows) (Blows and blows and blows and blows and blows, yeah, yeah) He wakes you with his crazy tune, then goes to bed and sleeps till noon (You gotta get up when Johnny toots his horn) He stands behind the barricade and plays his morning serenade (The Private gets up! The Corporal gets up! The Sergent gaets up!) (The Lieutenant gets up! The Captain gets up! The Major gets up!) (The Colonel gets up! The General Gets up!) The Army gets up! You gotta get up (When Johnny toots his horn) (When Johnny toots his horn) ********** A KNIFE, A FORK AND A SPOON / BORDING HOUSE, O BOARDING HOUSE Performed by Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights Hail McCorkle, Hail McCorkle We proudly sing thy praise Uuummmmmmm-uuummmmmmm Hail McCorkle, Hail McCorkle Where no one ever pays Welcome to the university for the fraternity We call it college, welcome to our little college As we march along, we'll sing our college song A knife, a fork and a spoon Will beat out a happy tune You'll all feel chummy as you fill your tummy With a knife, a fork and a spoon Start tap-tap-tappin' a dish You'll get your favurite wish Send troubles past you while your corned beefs passin' you With a knife, a fork and a spoon At Ma McCorkles's table That's where we play each night We eat all that we're able Though we may fuss, it's home to us So, come on, lift up your cup Let's drink it down. Bottoms Up! Through stormy weather, we'll all stick together With a knife, a fork and a spoon We're gathered round the table We're real friends through and through We're gathered round the table To eat Ma's Irish stew (Ma's Irish stew) Uuummmmmmmmmm O Boarding House, dear Boarding House >From thee we'll never roam O Boarding House, dear Boarding House To us your home sweet home ********** DO YOU BELIEVE IN FAIRY TALES? Performed by Larry Cotton with Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights Do you believe in fairy tales? (I do) I know a place where fairy tales (Come true) Just close your drowsy eyes, my dear and a genie will appear He'll take you by the hand (And through a star embroidered sky, on a carpet you will fly) Then you'll awake in Fairyland (A Prince will ride upon the sea, la-la-la-la-la) (He'll say, "Fair lady, be my Queen", la-la-la-la-la) In this beautiful land of laughter, you'll live happily ever after (If you believe that fairy tales come true) (Instrumental Break) (Do you believe in fairy tales? I do! (La-da-da-da-da-da) I know a place where fairy tales come true La-da-da-da-da-da) Just close your drowsy eyes, my dear, and a genie will appear He'll take you by the hand and through a star embroidered sky On a carpet you will fly, and you'll awake in Fairyland (A Prince will ride upon the sea, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) (He'll say, "Fair lady, won't you be my Queen", ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) In this beautiful land of laughter you'll live happily ever after (If you believe that fairy tales come true) ********** BROADWAY CABALLERO (Henry Russell) Performed by Paulette Goddard with Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights He's disarming, alarming, charming and gay First he steals your heart, then he throws it away He will tell you of tropical nights Make you dream of a thousand delights First he'll hold your hand, say you're simply grand Soon you're thinkin' his way (Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) (Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) (Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) (Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, Gay Caballero) (He's never been south of the border, he's never been Argentine way) (But when he starts to pet, the chances are you'll forget) (That he's a Caballero from Broadway) (South on Broadway) (He'll hold you and say, "Senorita! Right here in my arms you must stay") (And from his dialect, I know you'd never suspect) (That he's a Caballero from Broadway) (South on Broadway) (His daytime he spends parading on the Avenue) Then later you'l always find me with a girl or two, and a third in view (He'll take you to all the gay places, you'll make ev'ry Latin café) (He'll give you such a thrill, and then he'll hand you the bill) (This charming Caballero from Broadway) (South on Broadway) When Madame Lasagna learned the Conga, I swear I gave her the lesson, then I gave her the air (It seemed to be love in bloom, suddenly Boom!) (Another girl took over from there) (I know if you meet him, you are likely to fall) (His method's a cinch because it catches them all) (He'll sing you a serenade, tenderly played upon an old mail order guitar) (You bring up the subject of dancing and all of his pupils will say) (He's such an awful crumb, but no one dances the Rumba) (Like the Caballero from Broadway) (South on Broadway) (He'll tell you he lives in Argentina's biggest house) (But we know his hacienda is a boarding house, run by Senor Krauss) (He's such an impetuous fellow, he's like a dog having his day) (This phoney Don Amigo really comes from Las Vigo) (For this Caballero from Broadway) (He does okay) (Musical/Dance Interlude) (You better lock your heart, or he will tear it apart) (And that is just the start of your problem) (You feel so fantastic, but you are due for a panic) (Because your dream will pop like a bubble) (He'll leave you glad you met him, you will never forget this gay Caballero from Broadway) (Freedom, south on Broadway) ********** All songs transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2007) ********** (Contributed by - October 2007)
