I've one aim in life,
And that is winning you.
If you'll be my wife,
There's nothing I won't do
To bring you joy, dear.
Yes, I'm the boy, dear,
Who'd do the darndest all he
Could to be your Walter Raleigh.

Refrain 1

Just tell me what to do;
I'll more than see it through.
Dear, I'll do anything for you.
I'll buy insurance from your brother;
I'll even learn to like your mother.
With you I'll always brave
The bargain sales you crave;
I'll be your everlasting slave.
And if the cook should get too frisky,
Although the task is rather risky,
You'll find that I, myself,
Will tell her she is through.
Dear, I'll do anything for you.

Refrain 2

I'll let you choose my hats
And pick out my cravats;
You'll be my connoisseur of spats.
I'll even smoke cigars you buy me
And always pay your bills when they eye me.
You'll order all you see;
You'll charge it C.O.D.
And never hear a word from me.
Then what is more, dear, for good measure,
All your father's jokes I'll treasure.
I'm going to laugh at them
Until I'm black-and-blue.
Dear, I'll do anything for you.
