STANLEY STEAMER (Ralph Blane / Harry Warren) Jo Stafford Also recorded by: Ralph Blane; Paul Glasse; Barbara Lea; The Modernaires; Mickey Rooney. Get your veil and get your duster Get the yen for goggles when the wind's a guster Keep your Hubbard gown Firmly belted down When you're out in your Stanley Steamer In a gale we never fluster `Cause we're told we get that old familiar lustre If you're dressed in style Ev'ryone will smile When you're out in your Stanley Steamer Honk, honk! Honk, honk, honk! The donkey used to have his charm But he's looking at us with alarm For it looks like he's back to the farm But if you fail with your combustor Then your speed is gonna need a new adjuster And you must be just Just the one we trust Or we won't step inside No, we won't take the ride That you plan in your Stanley Steamer That you plan in your Stanley Steamer In your Stanley Steamer automobile. Chug, chug, chug, chug, Chug, chug, chug, chug, chug, chug. That flat tyre was so unexpected There she sat alone and rejected I started to sigh Then I caught the eye Of the man in the Stanley Steamer It began to rain When along the lane Came the man in the Stanley Steamer He was a sight to make me tingle And a dish to make me glad that I was single He proposed a ride So I hopped inside And away we started in the Stanley Steamer It was not that she was stupid Nor the shot she thought she got from Mr Cupid I just lost my heart From the very start To the man in the Stanley Steamer Honk, honk! Honk, honk, honk! The tandem bike has had its day If you're ridin' one you'll find that they Poke along in an obsolete way With all the bright anticipation Like a child with a wild imagination And we wanna ride, wanna ride inside Of the latest motor deal Wanna sit behind the wheel With the man in the Stanley Steamer With the man in the Stanley Steamer I'm a-nothin' but a dreamer In your Stanley Steamer Stanley Steamer automobile.
