THE SEWING MACHINE From the film "The Perils Of Pauline" (1947) (Frank Loesser) Betty Hutton (with Joe Lilley & His Orch.) - 1947 Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine A girl's best friend If I didn't having my sewing machine I'd a-come to no good end But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And wheel the wheel by day So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to play Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine A helping hand If I didn't have my sewing machine I'd drink to beat the band But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle As busy as a bug So by night I feel so weary that I can hardly lift a mug Ohhh, the sewing machine-ah, the sewing machine-ah A friend in need If I didn't having my sewing machine A wicked life I'd lead But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And dream about romance So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to dance Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine A pal so dear If I didn't have my sewing machine I'd try a stage career But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle Till amateur night comes by But by then I feel so weary that I haven't the strength to try Aye-aye-aye-aye, aye-aye-aye-aye Ohhh-ohhh, the sewing machine-ah, the sewing machine Me pride and joy If I didn't having me sewing machine I'd a-married James McCoy But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And that's the end of Jim 'Cause by night I get so weary I don't even look good to him Ohhh, have I got a boss, he looks like a hoss His name's Joe Gurt If he didn't own the sewing machine I'd a kicked him where it hurts While a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle He keeps his eyes on me Why I never never have kicked still remains a mystery Ohhh, I thread the needle and fix the shuttle And put in the cloth and pull up the lever And bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And wheel the wheel all day Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine The sewing machine, the sewing machine Is a girl's best friend This is the end ************ As performed by Betty Hutton in the film "The Perils Of Pauline" Ahhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine A girl's best friend If I didn't having my sewing machine I'd a come to no good end But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And wheel the wheel by day So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to play Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine A friend in need If I didn't having my sewing machine A wicked life I'd lead But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And dream about romance So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to dance Ohhh, the sewing machine, the sewing machine Me pride and joy If I didn't having me sewing machine I'd a married James McCoy But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle And that's the end of Jim 'Cause by night I get so weary I don't even look good to him Ohhh, have I got a boss, he looks like a ho'ss His name's Joe Gurt* I'm willing to bet the wages I get His face must hurt** While a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle He keeps his eyes on me Oh, I've never had a nightmare where I didn't meet Mister G * Pronounced Goit ** Pronounced hoit (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2010)
