As recorded by EDDIE CANTOR: Johnny was bashful and shy Nobody understood why Mary loved him All the other girls passed him by Every one wanted to know How she could pick such a beau With a twinkle in her eye She made this reply He's not so good in a crowd But when you get him alone You'd be surprised He isn't much at a dance But when he's taking you home You'd be surprised He doesn't look like much of a lover But you can't judge a book by it's cover He's got the face of an Angel but There's a devil in his eyes He's such a delicate thing But when he starts in to squeeze You'd be surprised He doesn't look very strong But when you sit on his knee You'd be surprised At a party or at a ball I've got to admit that he's nothing at all but in a Morris chair You'd be surprised Mary continued to praise Johnny's remarkable ways To the ladies And you know advertising pays Now Johnny's never alone He has the busiest phone Almost every other day A new girl will say He's not so good in the house But on a bench in the park You'd be surprised He isn't much in the light But when he gets in the dark You'd be surprised I know he looks as slow as the Erie But you don't know the half of it, dearie He looks as cold as an Eskimo But there's fire in his eyes He doesn't say very much But when he starts in to speak You'd be surprised He's not so good at the start But at the end of a week You'd be surprised On a streetcar or in a train You'd think he was born without any brain But in a taxicab, oh boy You'd be surprised ******************** Alternate last verse as recorded by BILLY MURRAY: He doesn't say very much But when he starts in to talk You'd be surprised He isn't much standing still But when we're out for a walk You'd be surprised I'll admit he doesn't look smart He won't impress you right from the start But in a week or two You would be surprised ******************** As recorded by MARILYN MONROE: He's not so good in a crowd But when you get him alone You'd be surprised He isn't much at a dance But then when he takes you home You'd be surprised He doesn't look like much of a lover Don't judge a book by it's cover He's got the face of an angel, but There's a devil in his eye He's such a delicate thing But when he starts in to squeeze You'd be surprised He dosn't look very strong But when you sit on his knee You'd be surprised At a party or at a ball I've got to admit he's nothin' at all But in a Morris chair You'd be surprised (Instrumental Break) He doesn't look like much of a lover Don't judge a book by it's cover 'Cause he's got the face of an angel, but There's a devil in his eye He doesn't say very much But when he starts in to speak You'd be surprised He's not so good at the start But at the end of the week You would be surprised On a streetcar or in a train You'd think he was born without any brain But in a taxicab, and when he starts to grab I said a taxicab You'd be surprised This ones's a real danger!
