YOU CAN'T SAY NO TO A SOLDIER From the film "Iceland" (1942) (Music: Harry Warren / Lyrics: Mack Gordon) Joan Merrill with Sammy Kaye & His Orch. (Film Soundtrack) - 1942 Listen little lady, it's the order of the day Issued by the highest of authority Fellows in the service simply can't be turned away You know that defence must get priority So if you're patriotically inclined Heed the call to arm and keep this thought in mind You can't say no to a soldier A sailor or a handsome marine No, you can't say no if he wants to dance If he's gonna fight, he's got a right to romance So, get out your lipstick and powder Be beautiful and dutiful too If he's not your type, then it's still okay You can always kiss him in a sisterly way Oh, you can't say no, no you gotta give in If you want him to win for you (Orchestral Interlude) You simply can't say no, no, no, no, no, no, no To a soldier or a handsome marine Lady, what wouldyou you say, if he said, "Let's dance" I'd say, "Brother, you have got a right to romance, let's dance" So, get out your lipstick and powder Be beautiful and dutiful too If he says it's cold on those submarines You can knit a sweater, but that's not what he means Oh, you can't say no, no, no, no, no, no, no They're not made of tin So, you'd better give in If you want him to win for you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
