Testo della canzone Happy Little Country Girl 21 May 1913 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] I know a girl
Sweet little pearl
Doesn’t know a thing about the city whirl
Lives on a farm
Where nature’s arm
Wraps around her all day
Early to bed
Early to rise
Keeps the light of Heaven shining in her eyes
Happily she spends the hours
Among butterflies and flow’rs

[1st chorus:] Happy, happy, happy, little country girl
Much too good for any Duke or Earl
Simple dress and ten cent ribbon round her curl
She’s a beautiful lady
Ruben lover loves her to her finger tips
Loves her kisses just like honey drips
He doesn’t taste a drugstore on her ruby lips
Happy little country girl

[2nd verse:] Birds on their way
Linger to stay
Long enough to sing to her a fond Good day
As she goes by
Roses all sigh
How they envy her cheeks
Early each day
Crowing away
Mister Rooster wakes her and he seems to say
Dress yourself, for goodness sake!
We’ll all be glad when you awake

[2nd chorus:] Happy, happy, happy, little country girl
Much too good for any Duke or Earl
Simple dress and ten cent ribbon round her curl
She’s a beautiful lady
Nine o’clock her tired eyes refuse to peep
Then into her cozy bed she’ll creep
She doesn’t miss a minute of her beauty sleep
Happy little country girl
