THERE'S A FELLOW WAITING IN POUGHKEEPSIE From the film "Here Come The Waves" (1944) (Harold Arlen / Johnny Mercer) Betty Hutton (Film Soundtrack) - 1944 Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters - 1944 Also recorded by: Taylor Jay. (Andrews Sisters) There’s a feller waitin’ in Poughkeepsie And he’s just as sweet as sweet can be He hasn’t even been tipsy Since I left him and took to the sea There’s another waitin’ in Pomona With the cutest dimple in his chin And there’s a guy in Daytona Who just waits for my ship to come in I miss ‘em, honour bright I write ‘em every night But if you held my hand I suppose they would all understand Oh, you mustn’t think I’m just a gypsy But I really ought to set you right There’s a feller waitin’ in Poughkeepsie But I’m strictly on my own tonight (Bing) There’s a WAVE who’s waitin’ in Biloxi Says she’s gonna marry me or bust We’re bein’ married by proxy When I find me a wolf I can trust There’s a spar who’s waiting in Waukegan Who is really different from the rest I think her last name is Reagan That’s the name that’s tattooed on my chest A WAC in Hackensack A WAC from Pontiac I got ‘em here and there What the heck, chicks are chicks anywhere Some of them are kinda bobby-soxsy But it might be quite a lengthy fight There’s a wave who’s waitin in Biloxi But I’m strictly on my own tonight. (All) There’s a sweetheart in Poughkeepsie (A.S.) Just as sweet as sweet can be, you see (All) He hasn’t even been tipsy Since I left him and took to the sea Oh, you mustn’t think we’re gypsies (A.S.) But we really ought to set you right (Bing) Well tell it tonight (All) There’s a feller and a girl witin’ in Poughkeepsie (A.S.) But I’m strictly on my own, (Bing) Yes I’m strictly on my own (All) Oh we’re strictly on our own tonight. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - August 2007)
