Lyrics:
INTRO:
        How glad the many millions of Annabelles and Lillians would be to capture me
        But you had such persistence, you wore down my resistance
        I fell and it was swell
        I'm your big and brave and handsome Romeo
        How I won you I shall never, never know
        It's not that you're attractive but, oh, my heart grew active
        When you came into view


I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and nighttime, hear me sigh
I never had the least notion
That I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo? Could you care?
For a cunning cottage we could share?
The world will pardon my mush
'cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you

{Hackett on trumpet-variations on first verse}

Could you coo? Could you care?
For a cunning cottage that we could share?
The world will pardon my mush
'cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you

{Hackett closes}
