...I shook him she took him (now I want him back again blues)- I thought the title of this song very redolent of those teenage years!
I picked up this old songsheet the other day primarily for the song title and the great period illustration, which I thought will look good framed. I love their costumes and the haughty look on the flapper's face.
Unfortunately I can't read music, but I found the lyrics very funny:
All my friends they tell me just how crazy I am
They say I shouldn't worry so about one man
I will admit he hasn't got a handsome face
I don't think he's connected with the human race
His back looks like the mountain
Got a caved in chest
One eye keeps lookin' east the other lookin' west
He wears a number 'leven shoe, his feet are flat
A sixteen shirt and collar and a fourteen hat
The one who said love was blind they sure do win
I guess I was crossed-eyed when I fell for him
The cover mentions a Sophie Tucker and although I can't find her singing this particular song, it sounds like comedy songs were here forté.
