ROAD TO MOROCCO [aka (WE'RE OFF ON THE) ROAD TO MOROCCO] Title song from the film "Road To Morocco" (1942) (Lyrics: Johnny Burke / Music: Jimmy Van Heusen) Bing Crosby & Bob Hope (Film Soundtrack) - 1942 Bing Crosby - 1942 Bing Crosby & Bob Hope - 1944 Rosemary Clooney & Jack Sheldon - 1993 As performed in the film "Road To Morocco" by BOB HOPE & BING CROSBY (1942): BING: Here we go again, Junior BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco This taxi is tough on the spine (BC: Beats the bus, huh, Junior) (BH: Oh, beats me) Where we're goin' BH: Why we're goin', how can we be sure BC: I'll lay you eight to five that we meet Dorothy Lamour (BH: Yahoo!) BOTH: Off on the road to Morocco Hang on till the end of the line BC: I hear this country's where they do the dance of the seven veils BH: We'd tell you more, but we would have the censor on our tails BOTH: We certainly do get around Like Webster's Dictionary, we're Morocco bound BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco BC: Look out BH: Well clear the way BOTH: 'Cause here we come BH: The men eat fire, sleep on nails and saw their wives in half BC: It seems to me there should be easier ways to get a laugh BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco And somewhere I feel kind of numb BC: For any villains we may meet we haven't any fears BH: Paramount will protect us 'cause we're signed for five more years BOTH: We certainly do get around Like a complete set of Shakespeare that you buy in the corner drugstore for a dollar ninety-eight We're Morocco bound Or like a volume of Omar Khayyam that you buy in the department store at Christmas time for your cousin Julia We're Morocco bound ******************** As recorded by BOB HOPE & BING CROSBY for record release (1944): BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco This camel is tough on the spine (BC: Hit me with a band-aid, Dad) BH: Where we're goin', why we're goin', how can we be sure BC: Well, I'll lay you eight to five that we'll meet Dorothy Lamour (BH: Get in line) BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco Hang on till the end of the line (BH: I like your jacket) BC: I hear this country's where they do the dance of the seven veils BH: We'd tell you more, but we would have the censor on our tails BOTH: We certainly do get around Like Webster's Dictionary, we're Morocco bound BOTH: We're off on the road to Morocco Look out, well clear the way, 'cause here we come BH: The men eat fire and sleep on nails and saw their wives in half BC: It seems to me there must be easier ways to get a laugh (BH: Shall I put my big shoes on) BOTH: Off on the road to Morocco Hooray! Well, blow a horn, everybody duck It's a green light, move on, folks BC: We may run into villains but we're not afraid to roam BH: Because we read the story and we end up safe at home, Yeah! Certainly do get around Like Webster's Dictionary, we're Morocco bound (Instrumental Break) We certainly do get around Like a complete set of Shakespeare that you get in the corner drugstore for a dollar ninety-eight We're Morocco bound Or like a volume of Omar Khayyam that you buy in the department store at Christmas time for your cousin Julia We're Morocco bound ******************** As recorded by BING CROSBY in 1942 with very different lyrics: Let's meet on the road to Morocco Instead of the tunnel of love The desert nights, the Arab tents, harem atmosphere 'Bout the best attraction Coney Island has this year Let's meet on the road to Morocco Though our Brooklyn moon shines above I'll whisper how I love you to the strains of native flutes And your arms will thrill me more than all the shoot-toot-toots Tell the gang so they won't hang around Like Webster's Dictionary, we're Morocco bound (Instrumental Break) Let's meet on the road to Morocco Let's dream for the price of a thin dime We'll ride a magic carpet that looks absolutely real Don't you think that's more romantic than the ferris wheel Let's meet on the road to Morocco It beats Central Park anytime The funny streets are nice and dark, the music is unique You can be the kidnapped girl, I can be the sheik Tell the gang so they won't hang around Like Webster's Dictionary, we're Morocco bound (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2015)
