WHAT'S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE [IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER] Clifford Friend as rec by Elsie Carlisle & Sam Browne 1930's [ec] Oh, here you are, late again, and you were out late last night! [sb] Well, what's that gotta do with you? [ec] Oh everything! I hear you've been gallivanting all over the place lately, and you kinda like it, don't you! [sb] And I've heard a lot of funny things about you! [ec] About me, have you? [sb] A-hmmm! [ec] I hear you've got a new romance, and honey I'm telling you something! [sb] What are you gonna tell me now? [ec] Would you like to listen? What's good for the goose is good for the gander, If you're on the loose, then I will meander! But if you're true, Then I'll be true, I'll do anything that you do! [sb] If you run around with another rooster, Then I'll run around just the way that I used ter! But if you settle down, Then I'll settle down, I'll do anything that you do! You're just like a little red hen, You haven't loved me since I don't know when! [ec] If you keep necking, with the way you roam, I'll keep necking till the cows come home! What's good for the goose is good for the gander, If you raise the deuce, then I will meander! [sb] But if you're true, Then I'll be true, [both] I'll do anything that you do! [sb] Oh, there's not much fun, When the daily work's done, To talk and talk and talk and talk and talk! [ec] To talk and talk and talk and talk and talk! [both] To talk and talk and talk and talk and talk! [sb] Nearly everyone, When their daily work's done, Love to [both] Talk and talk and talk and talk and talk! [sb] But honey, I'm not blind, You'd better keep this in your mind! When I love, they call me "King!", I hug and squeeze them, everything! [ec] If you ever love me again, old thing, Mother mother mother, tell the whole darned thing! [sb] What's good for the goose is good for the gander, If you raise the deuce, then I will meander! [ec] But if you're true, Then I'll be true, [both] I'll do anything that you do! With a hot'n-tot'n-tot'n-tot'n, hot'n-tot'n-tot! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2011)
