As recorded by STANLEY LUPINO: Some people make a fuss when a thing goes wrong Some start to swear and cuss, others sing a song I don't do either, that's all naphoo (sic) When a thing goes wrong with me, this is what I do I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" And there's no need to linger when I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I just can't curse 'cause it makes me feel worse And I cannot suck my thumb So I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" Some people say "Tut-tut", others say "Dash-dash" Some call for beef or mutt, others saus and mash If in the hotel, waiters are slow Do I thunder what the, who the, why the, how the, no I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" And there's no need to linger when I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" And if the cats at night are starting to fight Do I stand by, deaf and dumb No, I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" And if a girl says, "Dear, I am lost around here" Do I stand by, deaf and dumb No, I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" ******************** As re-recorded by LESLIE SARONY in 1980: Some people make a fuss when a thing goes wrong Some start to swear and cuss, others sing a song I don't do either, that's all naphoo (sic) When a thing goes wrong with me, this is what I do I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I don't need to linger when I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" When the wife tells me where I ought to be Do I look all meek and glum No! I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I don't need to linger when I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" When the baby screams and shatters my dreams Do I look all sour and glum No! I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" I don't need to linger when I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" When the golf I duff and get in the rough Do I start to cuss like some No! I lift up my finger and I say "Tweet tweet, shush shush, now now, come come" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2017)
