THAT'S WORTH WHILE WAITING FOR
(Words by Sam M. Lewis, Joe Young / Music by Harry Ruby, 1919)
I know a boy who is crazy about; a certain pet; it's two years
since they've met, and he hasn't got her yet. This little girl
that he's crazy about; kind o' turned his head, 'Cause when I
asked him to describe her; here's what he said:
Each night he begs for that one little kiss, he's wild about;
he'll get that kiss no doubt, if his patience don't wear out.
Day after day he keeps telling the boys, what a gal he has, and
when he's finished they all holler; "cut out that jazz."
"She's just the kind of a miss that's worth while waiting for
she's got the kind of a kiss, that's worth while waiting for;
she's always bashful and shy, but when you whisper "good-bye,"
she puts that 'promising look' in her eye, that's worth while
waiting for; she's got that wonderful smile the smile that
you adore; she let's you squeeze her awhile, then makes you
beg for more; she's got the kind of petting the kind that's
worth while getting, and what's worth getting is worth
while waiting for.
