THEY LOVE ME from 1962 New York musical "Mr President" (Irving Berlin 1962) as recorded by Kaye Ballard with Mitchell Ayres & his Orchestra October 1st 1962 New York Oh, what a trip, What a wonderful trip, And to think that I was worried At the start of the trip! I must confess that I was filled with doubt, But there was really nothing to worry about! They love me, they love me, I'm welcome everywhere with open arms! They love me, they love me, I never knew I had so many charms! In Pakistan they took me sailing on a lovely lake, In India they let me see a mongoose kill a snake, Because they love me, they love me, And they want me to come back again! They love me, they love me, In Tokyo they think that I'm a dream! They claimed me and named me, "America's Ambassador Supreme"! They always have a banquet on the day that I arrive, In Borneo they made me eat an octopus alive! Because they love me? - they love me, And they want me to come back again! They love me, they love me, With every place I visit it's the same! They meet me and greet me, With every kind of present you can name! A chieftain in New Guinea, with his forehead painted red, Presented me with a poison arrow and a shrunken head! Because they love me, oh they love me, And they want me to come back again! They love me, they love me, I smile when I'm presented with a key. In Thailand, 'twas my land, I spent a happy day from two to three! The day I left Arabia, my seat was full of bumps, They made me ride a camel, where I sat between the humps! Because they love me, they love me, And they want me to come back, They want me to come back, They want me to come back again! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2017)
