WHEN VERONICA PLAYS THE HARMONICA (Tommy Mack / Jimmy Mulcay / Mildred Mulcay) The Mulcays (vocal: Patricia Koren) - 1948 Kay Kyser's Kampus Kowboys (vocal: Gloria Wood) - 1948 You can sail around the world to see the sights And even see the famous northern lights, But strange as it may be I'm sure you will agree The greatest sight of all is by the sea When Veronica plays the harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica When she gives out with Gershwin and Bach The perch and barracuda come wigglin' up to the dock The seals and haddock get aquabatic When she plays on her chromatic When she plays boogie woogie, lobsters flippity flop She even made a submarine blow it's top When Veronica plays her harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica When Veronica plays the harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica She plays mad jive for hepcat fish She even plays a tune for a tuna that swims with a swish A big fat turtle whose name was Myrtle Shook and shivered till she broke her girlde The whale that swallowed Jonah yelled across the bay "I'll open up my mouth and let you go today To hear Veronica play her hamonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica" A flying fish from Avalon flew out of sight For he was smoking seaweed and was high as a kite When Veronica raised the thermometer Down on the pier at Santa Monica An oyster got so stewed at an oyster spa He stood right up and holler'd "Eat Me Eight To The Bar" When Veronica played her harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica A fish was using Lifebuoy soap, she knew how he felt She never smelled a smelt that smelt like that smelt smelt So Veronica took her harmonica And left the pier at Santa Monica ************************ As recorded by Kay Kyser/Gloria Wood: When Veronica plays the harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica When she gives out with Gershwin or Bach The perch and barracuda come wigglin' up to the dock The seals and haddock get aquabatic When she plays on her chromatic When she plays boogie woogie lobster flippity flop She even made a submarine blow its top When Veronica plays her harmonica Down on the peir at Santa Monica When Veronica plays the harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica She plays mad jive for the hepcat fish She even plays a tune for a tuna that swims with a swish A big fat turtle whose name was Myrtle Shook and shivered till she broke her girdle, The whale that swallowed Jonah yelled across the bay I'll open up my mouth and let you out today To hear Veronica play her harmonica Down on the pier at Santa Monica Two happy sturgeon whose hatch were mergin' Were married when her wedding march was urgin' Each sturgeon had some little ones with eyes of blue Who taught a school of eels and kippered herring too To play harmonica without Veronica Down on the pier at Santa Monica ************************
