SWISS MISS From the Broadway show "Lady Be Good" (1924) (George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin) Fred & Adele Astaire (London Stage Production) - 1926 (Yay-dee-lay-eee-ooh) (Yay-dee-lay-eee-ooh) (Yay-dee-lay-eeeee-ee-ee-ooh) Up on the top of a snow-covered mountain There lived an Alpine miss And oh, what a sweet little miss was this We mean this little Swiss miss While down in the valley below (Ho-ho) Lived a boy who loved her so (Ho-ho) He loved her with all his might He loved her day and night And every night just to see this miss He used to risk his scalp For the house where she lived was away up high And the poor guy didn't know how to fly So he jumped from alp to alp What a chump (What a chump) To jump (To jump) From alp to alp And then beneath her balcony He used to stand around and try to make a hit with her And he would yodel, "O-lay-eee-tee" That's the Swiss idea of a melody And oh, what a yodeling fool was he He shook a wicked yodel And one night as he stood there The lights were very dim While leaning out too far across her balcony She fell for him He sat with his arms around her Until the night was gone And here's the way they carried on He said, "Dear I think you're just as sweet as you can be You're like a cake of sweet Swiss chocolate to me" She said, "Oh, my loving one, your talk I can't resist I hope you're as steady as the Swiss watch ticking on your wrist" He said, "How I yearn for you, I burn for you, I do! I do! Oh, lady, oh, I swear it on my knees My love for you is just as strong as a piece of Sweitzer cheese" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2005)
