THERE OUGHT TO BE A SOCIETY (Mel Howard, Lee Erwin) As recorded by: Lou Preager & His Orchestra V. Rusty Hurren Recorded in 1948 Also recorded by: Betty Garrett, Harry Roy & His Orchestra Kay Kyser & His Orchestra There ought to be a society For the prevention of cruelty To poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers like me There ought to be a society For the extension of sympathy To poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers like me If you beat up a dog or a cat You go to jail for the maximum penalty They have protection laws for the dumb animals But nobody cares about me When I get beat, so I repeat There ought to be a society For the prevention of cruelty To poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers like me If you go for a walk in the zoo You never try for to beat up a chimpanzee He has an iron cage and a keeper to boot The monkey is better than me He grin at me, say he agree There ought to be a society For the prevention of cruelty To poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers Poor unfortunate lovers like me. (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - November 2013)
