AND SO I MARRIED THE GIRL >From the Broadway Revue "George White's Music Hall Varieties" (1932) (Music: Sam H. Stept / Lyrics: Herb Magidson) Harry Richman & Lily Damita (Broadway Production) - 1932 Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians - 1932 Charlie Palloy & His Orch. (vocal: Charlie Palloy) - 1932 Lew Stone & The Monseigneur Band (vocal: Al Bowlly) - 1933 As recorded by FRED WARING'S PENNSYLVANIANS: Listen, listen, listen to my little tale of woe Oh, oh, oh, listen to my little tale of woe Really, truly, I said i would never fall in love Well, well, well, like the rest I fell So beautiful were her eyes, her lips, her nose Every tooth a perfect pearl I couldn't resist her lips, her eyes, her nose I said I'll marry the girl So, what could I do, I smiled and caught her eye Said let's give romance a whirl But cleverly to myself I says, says I I'm gonna marry the girl First I met her Father, and then her Mother, too They both said take our daughter and good luck to you Are you listnin'? Merrily with my hat, my cane, a smile I gave my moustache a twirl When suddenly we were walking down the aisle And so I married the girl (Why don't you tell 'em exactly, why'd you marry that gal?) I can't (You can't? Well, we'll tell 'em) (She had a bank account, a yacht and such) (She had his head awhirl) (But he didn't care about her dough, not much!) (He only wanted that girl) (So, to the jewellery store he went his way) (Bought a necklace made of pearls) (For he knew he would get it back someday) (After he married that girl) (With his pals to hold him, he was nervous) (They marched down the aisle) (Then, there she told him) (She broke that sad news with a smile) (Just as he turned to run, her dad, he yelled) (A shotgun he did twirl) (Then suddenly he could see, he really cared) (And so he married the girl) (Is that right?) Yes, and so I married the girl (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2016)
