As recorded by JACK WHITING: I'd like to get away, Honey Somewhere alone with you It could be oh, so gay, Honey You need a laugh or two A certain place I know, Sweetheart Where funny people can have fun That's where we two will go, Darling Before you can count up One, Two, Three... For there's a small hotel With a wishing well I wish that we were there together There's no bridal suite One room bright and neat Complete for us to share together Looking through the window You can see a distant steeple Not a sign of people, who wants people When the steeple bell Says, "Good night, sleep well" We'll thank that small hotel together Pretty window curtains made of chintz In our make believe land On the wall are several cheerful prints Of Washington and Cleveland Go down into the parlour and feast your eyes On the moosehead on the wall Perhaps you'd like to play the organ They tune it every other Fall The garden will be like Adam and Eve land No, they never did go in for carriage trade They get what is known as marriage trade Oh, when the steeple bell Says, "Good night, sleep well" You very small hotel We'll creep into our little shell And we will thank that small hotel together ******************** As recorded by BEBE DANIELS & BEN LYON: BEN: All this noise is driving me crackers! I'd like to get away, Bebe Somewhere alone with you It could be oh, so gay, Bebe We need a laugh or two BEBE: A certain place I know, Ben, dear Where funny people can have fun BEN: That's where the two will go, darling BEBE: Before you can count up One BEN: Two BEBE: Three BEN: For... There's a small hotel With a wishing well I wish that we were there together BEBE: There's a bridal suite One room bright and neat Complete for us to share together BEN: Looking through the window You can see a distant steeple Not a sign of people BEBE: Who wants people When the steeple bell Says, "Good night" BEN: "Sleep well" BOTH: We'll thank the small hotel together BEBE: Darling BEN: Yes, dear BEBE: Will you love me when my hair turns to grey? BEN: Why not, I've loved you through black, through henna and platinum already BEBE: Ha-ha BEN: Oh, Bebe, what's the matter with my razor? BEBE: Yes BEN: What's the matter with my razor? It's so dull, I can hardly shave with it BEBE: Well, it was alright this morning when I sharpened my pencil with it! BEN: Ooh, darling BEBE: Oh, Ben BEN: Yes BEBE: There's a strange bird in my room BEN: Well, tell it to go downstairs and register! BEBE: Ha-ha-ha-ha, look, Ben Looking through the window You can see a distant steeple Not a sign of people BEN: Good! Who wants people When the steeple bell Says, "Good night" BEBE: "Sleep well" BOTH: We'll thank the small hotel together BEBE: We'll creep into our little shell BOTH: And we will thank the small hotel together BEN: Oh, Operator, please leave word not to disturb us. Goodnight! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2015)
